Access restrictions and network settings

Domain restrictions

As an administrator, you can manage domain restrictions for your team via web.


To manage domain restrictions:

  1. Open the Abstract app (desktop or web).
  2. In the left side pane, click on the organization name.
  3. From the dropdown, select Organization Settings.
  4. Select the Permissions tab. 
  5. Select the toggle beside Restrict user emails to specific domains.

  6. Add relevant domains to the list to manage team invitations.


We are happy to report we do support proxy settings for organizations. If you are experiencing syncing troubles and suspect proxy may be related, feel free to contact support for additional help troubleshooting and/or for a domain whitelist.

Authenticated Proxy

In some cases, your organization's IT administrators may have setup an authenticated proxy. If we detect that proxy authentication is required for you, a window will appear in Abstract prompting you to enter your Proxy Username and Proxy Password.

Your credentials are stored locally on your machine and are never sent to our servers. Completing the form will enable you to sync Abstract and collaborate with your team. If you do not have the login credentials, contact your IT or engineering team for the credentials. We are unable to provide credentials to you because we don't manage your network settings.

If you have additional questions or need help troubleshooting, contact Support.
