    Screen Time limits by device


    Hi

    now that we are home schooling (Again!) is there a way that I can separate screen time on the Xbox from that on the Windows 10 Laptop.

    at the moment the limit is for both devices together so i have had to add 5 hours onto the screen time to allow for schooling and also Xbox pay time.

    What i would like to do is allow free access to teams, excel and word but restrict Xbox time to our sons usual daily limit.

    Can this be done? if not Microsoft if you are listening this would be great functionality for us parents Screen Time limits by device :)

    :)

    What time XBox was used

    I receive an activity report for my sons xbox and noticed that on Monday he spent over 10 hours gaming.

    Is there a way to check what times he was on as I suspect he was using it through the night?

    I only get the screen time, not the times of the activity
    Currently there is no way to see the exact time period that an individual was using a monitored device, although to prevent future infractions, you can set screen time limits for certain devices, effectively locking them until the end time limit. See the
    article that I attached, and I hope that this helps you.

    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).

    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

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