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.
Adding to this we should be able to apply the custom date and custom time to a user created machine group. Group A: Updates on Tuesday's. Group B: Updates on Thursdays.
Please advise the forum when the update is planned.
So... This is one of my favorite SG features. Please add it.

This seems like it should have been there from the beginning. Especially with it already in SGs forever.
Please add this!
Very important Feature!!
Simply schedule the update at 03:00 a.m with no Need to be live
Needs to be added asap !
I don't know why this feature is not in XG although it already existed for SG. Needs to be added asap!!
Also, why do we have to manually upload a firmware update without active enhanced support subscription? SG was always able to check for updates and download them.
even worse, I'm not seeing in the partners central portal, where the CFM can even approve or install firmware updates. why should I have to log into the device to install updates?

How is this feature an after thought? Sigh.

Please add the option to schedule firmware updates for XGs

The ability to schedule firmware installation and activations is essential to us as we manage so many customer devices
As UTM, able to schedule firmware installation
It would be very helpful to set the date and time of the installation of updates.
Not only every day, every 2 days, every week..
XG looks like Sophos Standard. On Email Virtual Appliance, when I have a new pending firmware to install, I recieve an email saying that a new firmware is available to install and it will be installed at .... (I have automatic upgrade during the night). Inside the email, I have the link to release notes.
Please implement this feature to XG too.
