Setting time restrictions on a profile in Jamf School

This article assumes you know how to create a profile and push it to devices.

It is possible in Jamf School to set time restrictions on a profile, for example if you want to enforce a profile that disables the usage of certain apps during school hours, it is possible to configure this.

To start, you'll need to have a profile set up that you want to use; In this article we'll be using a layout restriction profile as an example:


Selecting the time filter function (Highlighted in the above screenshot) gives the possibility to set a start and end time for the profile. You can also configure what days this profile should be active. During these days and between the selected start and end time the profile will be installed on the device enforcing anything configured inside of it.



  • A device will only get the profile queued during the start time. For the profile to actually push the device has to check in.
  • It could take up to 15 minutes before a profile is pushed, however, in practise this is usually a lot faster.
