What is Workstation Approval?
Workstation Approval is a security feature that allows you to restrict access to ShipStation to one or more specific workstations for a particular user. A common use of this feature would be to restrict a user's ability to access ShipStation from any location outside of your corporate environment.
After enabling Workstation Approval for a user, they will not be able to login to ShipStation until an administrator has logged in and authorized the account.
IMPORTANT: Admin approval must be performed on the same computer and same browser that the user will use to access ShipStation.
Approval for a user will expire after a period of one year but can be unapproved by viewing the user's My Profile page in their Account Settings.
NOTE: Admin approval is saved in a browser cookie and approval will revert to a denied status if the browser cookies are cleared.
