  2. Enter your Username and Password.
  3. Click Login.
  4. Set the number of minutes the override will remain valid for, and click the green button to accept the request or the red X button to deny the request.

If the request was allowed, the user is now permitted to access websites in this URL category for the time span you set. If you denied the request, this URL category is blocked for the set time span.
