Profile enhancement to enable 'House Rule Sets' e.g. for Leisure Time, Study Time, Holiday, Project XYZ, ...

House Rule Sets

When I come to think about 'house rules' I miss a feature that allows to orchestrate them with a feature I'd like to name 'House Rule Set', e.g. Study Time, Leisure Time, Holiday, Project XYZ or Travel

Requirements summary

  • Provide the switch 'House Rule Set' with a name and the values active and inactive. Each 'House Rule Set' consists of the known house rule categories (Time-, Web-, Search Supervision, ..., see Define house rules using Android).
  • Other House Rule Sets should use switches that allow to 'Inherit House Rule Set' for each house rule category.
    • The 'Inherit House Rule Set' allows to select among the active 'House Rule Sets'.
    • A  'House Rule Set' can not be deleted or inactivated while it is inherited on an other 'House Rule Set'.
    • The user can provide further definitions using the known house rule category values.
    • The house rule categories values are considered superseding definitions if the 'Inherit House Rule Set' is not used.
  • Time Supervision should be extended with a calendar that allows activation of a 'House Rule Set' depending on from and to dates and the switch 'Use Calendar' active/inactive.
  • Provide the ability to activate a 'House Rule Set' on the fly for a specific time period (select form a drop down list)
  • If multiple 'House Rule Sets' fire at the same time then excluding rules govern over allowing rules.
