ClockOn can be configured to ensure all users with administrative access are using two-factor authentication (2FA). When 2FA is configured in the System Setup all admin users that attempt to login without 2FA configured, will be prompted to configure 2FA and will not be able to access ClockOn features until it has been configured. 


NOTE: Employee administrative access is an employee who has Admin ticks for a department on the departments tab. Typically they are Managers, Payroll officers and Roster Officers
