Palo Alto Firewall Schedules

Recently we had a request from a client to create a schedule for their Palo Alto Firewall that would restrict access to social media and streaming media. The client wanted to restrict access between the hours of 8:30 PM and 6:00 AM. The client is running the 4.1.7 operating system on their PA-5020. Initially the client tried to setup the schedule as recurring weekly schedule Monday-Thursday from 20:30 - 06:00. The policy was not being hit when we looked at the traffic logs. What we found out was that in order to create the schedule you had to put in a full day's worth of time. Below you can see how we got the schedule to work during the days and times the client requested.
