Special Hours

The Configuration > Group Policy > Special Hours page allows you to set a second policy to override the rules of the default policy controlling how URL requests to sites (categorized by content type) and to files (categorized by download type) are handled. You then define the hours during which these rule overrides are used instead of the Default Policy page rules.

For example, if you want to apply a default policy that restricts users from accessing sites that reduce productivity during regular working hours, but you want to allow users to access those sites outside of regular working hours, you can configure the special hours policy to apply from the end of regular work hours to the beginning of regular work hours and during the lunch hour too.
