ManicTime Server custom authentication
Choose ManicTime Server native users if the machine where you are installing ManicTime is a standalone server, not part of any domain. This is also a better option if you have a lot of Mac users.
If you choose this option, you will have to create user accounts for each user once the server is installed.
