Networking: Time-Based quality of service rules
Add option for Time-Based QOS rules, Where we can assign time and Bandwidth to a Network.
This is very, very, very useful right now in the Corona home office time!!
And otherwise this is a great feature that we need a lot! :)
Please implement the feature. :)
Thanks and Best regards

This has been "under review" since 2013... And it's 2019!
This feature doesn't seem it should be hard to implement, given that you UTM already has time-based firewall rules.
Should be implemented
Would be very useful. Please implement that!

This needs to exist! Most people don't even realize how much wasted bandwidth is happening because this feature doesn't exist. Make it happen!

This has been first mentioned in 2010 (on this page anyway)? Cheaper firewalls already have this feature. This shouldn't even be a request of any decent firewall these days, yet alone a request that has sat for five years. The option to assign time to a firewall rule is working fine. Would it really take that much work to allow assigning time to QoS rules? Five years worth of work?? Your customers know what they want and they're telling you, Sophos. Why not react faster?? For now, admins are stuck with manually flipping these QoS services on at the appropriate time or using a rule to block (instead of shape) traffic during the time window.

This would be useful to handle bulk uploads to go faster during off hours. Having to limit upload to keep the phones working clearly while staff is using them, but allow the full upstream when staff is out of the office would be greatly beneficial. Admin's would spend less time choosing the lesser evil.
Would be very useful to limit inter-site data replication during workhours...
Come on, Sophos, implement it please, can't be very difficult and it would be very useful.

Over 2 years under Review and still not implemented, why?
Should be implemented as soon as possible. QoS without time scheduling is almost useless.
Very need feature, QOS without time is incomplete
Totally agree. We need that feature right now.
I just came here to request this feature. Turns out it already is requested. Hope it gets implemented soon! Time-Period object is already available on firewall rules, can't see why not on QoS / Bandwith pools!
This is not really an optional feature for a next-gen gateway.
I would like to strongly suggest for this to be implemented as soon as possible.

Needed this just yesterday. Had an offsite backup job run over into work hours and slowed everything to a crawl. Nothing I can do but manually enable a QoS rule in the morning when I arrive and hope I remember to turn it off before te end of the day.
It would be perfect...if there is the way to create a rule as following:
user1 -> social Networking -> 1hour
so in work day a specific user o group of users can visit social sites maximum for 1 hour
