Screen time restrictions overly limited.

When managing screen time, I cannot set from 06:00 AM until 12:30 the next morning as an allowed time.

As a fix, I suggest have either allowed time, or blocked time.

If I had a blocked time toggle, I could block from 12:30 am until 06:00 AM

Re: Screen time restrictions overly limited.

Hello Chris

It looks like you are trying to add a period that is beyond the daily limit. You could try adding 06.00AM to 11.59PM though the kid will not be provided with 31 minutes of activity from 12.00AM and 12.30AM.

Re: Screen time restrictions overly limited.

That't the point.  The screen time is poorly defined.  It should be flexible enough for the scenario I've described.

Even being able to set time off versus time on is an improvement, and a relatively simple way to work around the complexity of the original demand.

Hi ​,

We are looking at a more flexible version of setting different times that a child can  be blocked (or allowed). If you would be willing, maybe we can share some of those designs with you so that we can get your feedback. if you would be interested, please contact me at eming_saung@mcafee.com and we can take this conversation to email.

Thanks,

E-ming
