Content Filters & Firewalls

7shifts, like our customers, takes security seriously. We understand that a small portion of our clients have content filters or firewalls enabled in their restaurant locations. In order to avoid interruption of service, and ensure smooth operation of 7shifts products and services, we ask that you familiarize yourself with this article.

Please ensure that the following required host names are entered correctly into your content filter, or talk to your IT department about these. Of course, do not hesitate to contact our support team for additional help.
