Time periods
The cloud service allows you to configure policies that restrict web surfing by time of day for either the whole policy or for website categories, users, and groups. When an exception rule is configured, it is applied to a time period.
Use the Web > Policy Management > Time periods page to configure time periods for your account. These are configured at the account level so that they can be available for use in multiple policies, if required.
Each account is provided with 4 default time periods.
To edit or view a time period
Click the name of a time period (for example, "Working hours").
You can assign the time zone for the period, which is typically the default for the policy or connection where the users are located (see Proxied connections).
The dark area defines the actual time period. Each division is a 15 minute period and can be set with either a single click or by clicking and dragging to produce a wider area. As you roll your mouse over the area, the absolute time is displayed below the time chart.
To define a new period
1.
Click Add time period.

If you do not want to use the default for the policy or connection, you can select a particular geographical location and city (for example Australia/Sydney), or a time zone such as GMT or UTC.
