Enable job after a delay

I would like to suggest a new feature : Enable job after a delay

I made the classical mistake yesterday, i wanted to patch my VBR server, but i had to disable my continuous jobs before i was allowed to install the patch.
Did i remember to enable the jobs again, no! probably not the only one making this mistake.

So it would be nice to be able to disable a job for a period, and then it will enable itself automatically after a chosen time.
It could set in minutes or hours.

Or is it just me wanting this ?

Have a nice day,

Hi Henrik,

Thanks for the FR. As a solution for now, you may want try to use this alarm in Veeam ONE: Disabled backup job. This alarm tracks how much time the job was in the disabled state and triggers a notification if job was in a disabled state for more that allowed time period. As a post job action, you can specify a script that would enable the corresponding job's schedule.
