3. Step 2: What — From the Available categories or category groups list, select what categories or category groups will trigger the content being blocked. Click Next to continue.

For more information about categories, see Working with Category Group Objects .

4. Step 3: Where — From the Available locations list, select where the policy applies. Click Next to continue.

For information about locations, see Working with Location Objects .

5. Step 4: When — From the Available time slots list, select when the policy applies. Click Next to continue.
