Is it possible to set one time limit with F-Secure SAFE family rules, which child can use as he/she wants between different devices?

Issue:

Is it possible to set one time limit with F-Secure SAFE family rules, which child can use as he/she wants between different devices?
How do Family Rule time limits work?

Resolution:

At the moment it is not possible to have a shared time limit between two or more devices. (That is, you can't set it up so that you'd have, for example, 1 hour of use per day between your phone and your tablet.)

The time rules work currently as follows: 

You set up a weekday time limit and a weekend time limit and these are the same for all devices on that child's profile. However, time is tracked separately for each device. That is, if Timothy has an android phone, android tablet, and PC, and they have 1-hour time limit on weekdays, and 2-hour time limit on weekends, they can do the following: On weekdays, they can play 1 hour on their phone, on their tablet, AND on their PC. On weekends, they can play 2 hours on each device, per day. So, on weekdays it's a total of 3 hours of play on their devices (1 hour on each), and on weekend days it's 6 hours of play on their devices (2 hours on each).

If you want to limit the total time the child can play between all of their devices, it is recommended to take into account the number of devices they have, and set the time limit accordingly. (So, for example, if the child has 3 devices, and you want to limit them to 1.5 hours on all of them, set the time limit to 30 minutes per device. This way they have a bit of variety too!)
