WebAdmin: Time-Period Definition Groups
Example: A customer wants to handle the internet access restrictive for the users but from 12 to 1PM, from 6 PM to 6AM and on the weekends, the users should have more access in the proxy profiles.
So i have to create 4 Filter Assignments (lunch, evening, morning, weekend) for the open periods.
If there are different rule for the open periods, there will be 8, 12, 16 Filter Assignments! With the possibility to group time periods or to create one period with many single entries, the number of necessary Assignments can be reduced drastically.

I give it 3 votes. We use time-period for adding firewall rules and thus limiting the acces for remote users by time.
This would be realy perfect!! We use Time-Period definitions for switching VPN Tunnel for specific trainingcenter connections on/off. If there would be a Groupe, we could list all the next time-periods in it and dosn't have to change them regular befor the traings starts.
