It would be more practical to make one time limit for a child that would be applied to any machine the child uses. Now if a child uses several Windows machines, you will have to set up a separate time limit for each machine. This is not practical at all. And if you want to change the screen time limit, you will have to go through each child's profile and set it for each machine in his profile.
I have many children and several PC's, and I see how difficult and time consuming it is. Setting one time limit for a day is much more useful. The child can use any machine, but the time he spends on each machine will be counted towards the one time limit.

Yes, this is definitely a big oversight from their side.
We started out by testing Parents Around which had this feature, I could set a time limit for each day and also between which hours they could use the devices. So for instance I could stop them from playing before school and so on. And the time was counted over all devices (Android and Windows devices) so if the time limit was 2 hours and they played for two hours on the phone all devices would be blocked (except for allowed apps off course).

There was another major flaw in it though but I can’t remember what it was.
