Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Firmware Installation.
Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Firmware Installation is required. The firmware updates and AV Updates should get automatically downloaded over the WAN interfaces, however installation of this updates should be done only when the Date and time is scheduled by the Network Administrator.
In addition to the available scheduling options, the custom category should be added, where in the administrators can select a custom date and custom time, after selecting the custom date and custom time the system should prompt if these settings are just to be executed once, daily, weekly, every 15 days or monthly.

How is this not a feature in the XG line?
Really!? Unbelivable, Im a SG Partner for years and you want me to switch to XG?! Make it happen!

Releasing a new firmware update again but this feature is still nowhere to be found. Please consider.
Unbelievable. This is the third top request with over 500 votes. There are suggestions with 30 votes that are "Under Review", yet Sophos haven't responded to this one at all.
Sophos - It's been 3.5 years. Why do you have this forum for ideas if you're only going to listen to the suggestions you want? Over 500 of your customers want this feature. Is it too much to ask for a response here?
It's pretty ridiculous that this feature isn't available yet. Seriously need to listen to your customers.

Giving us the option in Sophos central to patch update our firewalls and manage our backups is amazing as per this article :
WHEN WILL WE BE ABLE TO SCHEDULE FIRMWARE UPGRADES/REBOOTS???
Sebastien Huwart commented
This request is over 3 years old yet no Sophos reps. have addressed it at all ! Scheduling a reboot/firmware upgrade is a basic feature of most routers, why are you ignoring us?
Mischa Dalen Gilhuys commented
make it happen !!!
Is there any forecast to implement this feature?
We are awaiting for that.

Another great feature denied.
Looking forward to this feature, as are my teammates. Please roll this out.
"This will be implemented in a future update." August 25, 2017... and 2 years later...nothing new...
So Alan, I suggest you copy paste this response to all the other ideas. It costs nothing, it does not commit to anything and it brings life and colors to this website !
Surely XG v.18 will have this basic piece of functionality.

Auch ein überfälliges Feature, was bei der UTM Standard ist.
XG is still missing some basic functions that exists in UTM... How are you (Sophos) expecting to migrate UTM users to XG without them? So you expect admins to implement new firmware during bussiness hours or to make us to work out of bussiness hours everytime we have to implement them...

In 2017, I was told that they think that this is going to eventually come out. What's going on here? This is at the point of being literally absurd. Is there a technical reason that this can't be done? Can we at least not be left in the dark about it, Sophos? Please?
