[Feature Request] Allowed Scan Times

While setting up a scan, we have the ability to say "If a scan runs more than X days/hours, pause it, and then resume it Y days/hours from the original start time".

 

I would like to be able to define windows of time during which scans run, assign those to domains, networks, asset groups, etc., so that a scan automatically pauses and restarts based on the time window, rather than individually defined pause and restart times.

 

I found it very confusing during a scheduled scan what, exactly the Duration and Resume meant.  I originally thought - and was unable to find anything indicating otherwise, that the Resume setting started counting from Pause time, but experience has proven that it counts from the original Start time.

 

Having a previously defined window of time during which a scan is allowed would provide another, perhaps easier to understand, option for scheduling when scans are allowed to run.
