Family Timer that Enables Play Limitations for Child Accounts
Add the family timer like there is on the 360. I have children and like the ability to control the amount of play time they have.
Parents who have child accounts can now set limitations on screen time for Xbox One! When signed into your parent account, go to http://microsoft.com/family to view and set limits for any child accounts.
This is sooo frustrating. The screen time is NOT limited only the online gaming time with others. What good is that????
If the user is older than 13 you cannot set time limits. Please at the option for 13-17 year olds.

There is a timer dummy
add your son's account as child account to your account's family then you can set the timer.
this works for xbox one.
New Update Released... Works Great!!!

Screen time limits
Screen time limits let you limit the hours and times of day your child can play. To turn it on, sign in at account.microsoft.com/family and click Screen time for any child account. Then turn Xbox Screen time to On, and set your child's limits for each day. Once your console has the update, it'll start enforcing those limits.
We have Xbox 360 with family timer. I Bought Xbox One week ago. One does not have same family timer feature? I will return One back to shop due this.
Is this fully functional yet?
So.. when is the next update?
No more xbox one for our kids or gold subscriptions or games until screen time limits are in place...too many family conflicts about who has played how long...you can do better Microsoft....so long until this issue is resolved.

Please add this feature. It was on 360. We have changed to xbox one. Had we known this feature was not avaialable we woukd have delayed changing consoles. It saves a lot of arguments in the house with a 10 year old
Believe the earlier posters are correct -- XBox Support informed me that the activity reporting and additional child controls for XB1 are currently in "Preview." So, the selected few in the XBox Preview Program may have access. But, it will be part of the wider release once it's finished testing.
I suppose it's true what they say... Better late than never, right? :)
@ShippHappens905 The feature actually was only added recently and I think its still in beta testing as I've set it up for my child but it hasn't restricted him what so ever.
Please add the timer so I can limit my kids play and also allow them to play only at certain times for when I'm not home
it's here and working... tested it on the alpha release... also they have more plans
For those that do not know how to set this for the PC, here is the link. https://account.microsoft.com/family#/
