How to edit account settings for your KCM console
The Account Settings area is where you can customize several aspects of your KnowBe4 Compliance Manager (KCM) account. For instance, you can add your company's logo to the console, limit the IP addresses from which users can log into the console, and change the default timelines for Effective Date Range due dates.
Follow the two steps below to access your Account Settings.
- After logging into your account, click on Settings at the top right of the screen, and then choose Account Settings.
- From the View Account Screen, click on the Manage Account Settings button to edit your Account Settings (see below).

Be sure to use commas to separate the IP address entries. If you don't know your system's IP address, you can use the Whats My IP Address button to the right of this field.

NOTE: Be sure your users have set up MFA before selecting Mandatory from the drop-down menu. See our Enable and Set Up Multi-Factor Authentication article for more information.
Configure Effective Date Range
When you create compliance Tasks in the console, you have an option to use an Effective Date Range (EDR) schedule. If you utilize EDR, you are choosing to specify the length of time that the Evidence submitted for a particular Task is valid–in reference to the associated compliance Requirement. See our KCM Glossary of Terms for an example of EDR.
If you utilize the Effective Date Range feature for your Tasks' Evidence, the deadline to submit new Evidence will be a specified length of time after the last day of the EDR.
The default EDR due dates are pre-selected in your Account Settings. If you'd like your account's Tasks to have a shorter or longer deadline for submitting new Evidence, you can specify this time frame here (shown below).
