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.

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?
Experiencing some serious buyer's remorse after upgrading our UTM to XG. Can't believe this basic functionality was left out.
c'mon Sophos, you're better than this! Let us schedule updates.
Manual installation is a dis-incentive to patch. Makes security worse rather than better.
Scheduling firmware updates should have been implemented by now.
Please add scheduler for firmware updaste to XG firewall
It is one important feature of the UTM. Due XG should replace UTMs, why did you downgrade this function?
This needs to be an option. With 70+ XG firewalls it takes too much of my time to do these manually. Especially when 2 firmware versions are released within a week of each other.
