Use the Filter Components > Edit Categories > Override Action page to change the action applied to a category in all existing category filters. This also determines the default action applied to the category in new filters.
Although this change overrides the action applied to the category in all existing filters, administrators can later edit those filters to apply a different action.
Before changing the settings applied to a category, first verify that the correct category name appears next to Selected Category. Next, you can:
1.
Chose a new Action (Permit, Block, Confirm, or Quota). See Actions for more information.
By default, Do not change current settings is selected for all options on the page.
2.
Specify whether or not to Block Keywords. See Keyword-based policy enforcement for more information.
3.
Specify whether or not to Block File Types, and customize blocking settings. See Managing traffic based on file type for more information.
4.
Specify whether or not to Block with Bandwidth Optimizer to manage access to HTTP sites, and customize blocking settings. See Using Bandwidth Optimizer to manage bandwidth for more information.
 
Important 
5.
(Hybrid only) Specify whether or not to Permit when user is off-site. See Actions for more information.
If the selected category is permitted, or if Permit is selected in the Action group box, Permit when user is off-site is selected by default and disabled. If the selected category is blocked, the option is enabled.
 
Note 
6.
