  2. A new window will be displayed. There, choose New (wizard) button.
  3. A wizard will display a welcome screen. Click Next > to proceed further.

  • Creating a new filter without a wizard (for advanced users)
  • Running a new wizard which will enable you to follow next stages of creating such a filter. For the purpose of the tutorial, we will choose this option.

  2. By clicking on the plus, add the filter to a domain which will be blocked. Confirm the choice and proceed further.
  3. After choosing the filter, click Next >

  5. Describe the action which will be taken after a violation will be identified.
  6. Choose a department or workers which will be subjected to the filter.
  7. A new window will display a summary of all implemented changes. Here you can modify them according to your needs.
