Watch a video about Time Intervals

You can define time intervals for use in policies. For example, if you want to block users from accessing shopping sites from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, you can create a time interval called Weekdays that includes Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

To define time intervals:

  1. Do one of the following: 
    • Go to Administration > Time Intervals, then click Add Time Interval
