  1. Microsoft Family Time Limit not working


    Hi there,


    My 11 year old son's microsoft profile account is connected to our family account so I can control how much screen time he gets etc.


    I have limited him to be on his computer until 7.30pm in the evenings. However, tonight, when I went up to check on him at 8pm, he was still happily on his computer. I have checked that the profile he is logging in with is connected to his microsoft account. The one he uses IS a local account on windows but is nonetheless linked to his windows account.


    Any idea why the 7.30pm curfew is not being enforced?


    On a related question, is there ANY way to say that he can only get say 7 hours of screen time during any one week? I have limited him to 1 hour per day during the week and 2.5 hours on Saturday and Sunday. But I'd like to have an option to be able to limit his total time per week.


    Thanks

    :)
