    Screen time limitations and school


    I have seen this question posed elsewhere in these forums, but the thread was locked after a couple of years of Microsoft not giving any helpful input and lots of other parents complaining about the same lack of functionality from Microsoft Family Safety. I'm wondering if Microsoft has otherwise addressed this since then since I cannot seem to find anything else useful.

    Essentially, I want to create a screentime schedule where my children can use their laptops during the school day to access productivity software and education related websites, but I want to block certain websites, games, and apps during this time. Norton Family does have a school time feature that allows me this sort of flexibility, but only works on the phones and computers, not the X-Box. Later in the day, I would like them to have full access to games during a set time with certain screentime limits that the school time does not impact. For instance, if I wanted to set a 2-hour screentime limit for school nights, I would not want the four hours they spent on the computer at school to take away from that evening limit.

    Based on what I've seen so far, I'm not optimistic that Microsoft has a reasonable solution, or is even interested in creating a reasonable solution, so I'm also very interested in other means of accomplishing the same thing or similar.

    :)

    Screen time limitations and school

    First, I don't work for Microsoft. These are just forums but with that said, I just googled the question you asked and got this...

    https://www.howtogeek.com/672818/ho...to the,this account can play for on that day. Link

    Microsoft is working hard to enure that parents have easy access to user-friendly tools, which can control all the various aspects that make up our digital lives. With Microsoft Family Group, you can easily set a healthier schedule for when certain accounts in your group can use the Xbox One and for how long. To access these settings, open any browser, and navigate to the Microsoft Family Group website.

    First, you’ll want to create a Family Group, which you can do either through this website or on your Windows 10 PC. Next, from the main page of your Microsoft Family Group, scroll down to the family member for whom you wish to regulate screen time. Click “Screen Time.”

    There was a lot more on the page but I suggest using google. It's amazing. :p

    Microsoft family time limit across all games.

    The current options are virtually useless, especially for kids that have an xbox and a gaming PC that they use for school work.

    Having to have 2 accounts for my son, one for gaming (with a screen time limit) and an account where I'll block games, with no limit.

    It's naff though, a cumulative games limit would be far far better

    screen time limits

    Yes, we’re having the same problem! The parental controls appear to be a great feature, but only if they actually work. If microsoft can’t fix them it’ll be back to having an argument every time we want our son to quit Fortnite (sigh).

    screen time limits

    activity doesn't show up that they have been on it at all even when they are blocked , whether that be by more than the time limit or by the fact its blocked .

    If there is another account on there it is mine but they need my password to access that ,

    If thney have two gamer tags which did occur to me that might be the case how to I associate that with his other gamertag

    Screen time limits

    I like this idea, similar to how the iPhone regulates screen time. Would be great for kid’s accounts
