One of our most-requested features has been the ability to get an alert when your account usage exceeds a certain threshold. This week we made it happen! Upon navigating to Organization -> Profile, you'll see a "Usage Alert Amount" field. After setting this value, you'll receive an email alert anytime your monthly bill exceeds this threshold. This feature is great for being aware of your monthly billing, as well as safeguarding against excessive queries from too many clients, or compromised devices. You'll be instantly notified so that you can take action. Read here for more information: https://docs.dnsfilter.com/docs/profile
The Policy Audit Log also received an upgrade this week. From now on, any changes you make to your Scheduled Policies will also be tracked in the Audit Log. This is great for larger organizations who have several staff members that administer policy changes.
We used the holiday break to beef up our server capacity for 2019, including upgrading our Syndney, Australia server and maintenance of our reporting database. The backend team also added support for LAN IP reporting, in anticipation of our upcoming LAN proxy. The frontend team was hard at work enhancing the robustness and uniformity of our dashboard.
The day after Christmas, we also added Hebrew support to our blocked pages. We use the browser's language setting to seamlessly display our block pages in a natural format. This means that in most cases, the change is automatic. We now have support for 11 languages in total! (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Ukrainian, Italian, Russian, French, Czech, German and Hebrew)
We are excited to talk about two new dashboard enhancements which have just been released:
The Policy Audit Log can be found in the Tools section of the dashboard. This tool allows you to see the record of changes to your policies in the last 30 days, including who made the policy, the specific changes that were made, and when the changes occurred. This is especially useful if you have multiple account administrators, and wish to view a record of policy changes.
As part of our effort to assist you in moderating online content, we have provided the capability to lock down your filtering policies to only allow search engines that provide SafeSearch functionality. This new feature can be found on the SafeSearch tab of any of your filtering policies. Simply flip the switch for "Block all search engines not supporting SafeSearch"
