Networking: Time-Based quality of service rules
Add option for Time-Based QOS rules, Where we can assign time and Bandwidth to a Network.
It would be useful to get different QoS settings for day an night use of backup traffic. So backups to a colocation (or the cloud) would not stress our internet bandwidth at daytime.
Implement option to limit P2P upload and download bandwidth on hourly basis (e.g. to allow full bandwidth over the night, while limited over the day).
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
Hey guys plz vote...!!

Would be very helpful for us, too
Great feature for MPLS-Networks while jobs are running over night!
It would be great feature..
I think your request is a duplicate of this one: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-astaro-security-gateway-feature-requests/suggestions/1267243-bandwidth-per-time-settings-qos-?ref=title
It would be great Idea for Bandwidth management.
