How would one go about restricting jobs/tasks to run only during certain times of the day, no matter what time the job/task was run.
For example, a job was submitting to run via the API during the restricted hours but after the restricted hours have passed the would job run.

* With Time Exceptions you can prevent a Job from starting a certain time.
* You can use Timeout property stop a Job after a certain Time.
* You can use an ordinary Time Trigger to start a Job that stops other Jobs.

These are the options currently available.

ok the time exception looks like what I need. Lets say my time exception was set for the hours: 12AM - 1AM.
I have a job made up of 2 task: TASK_A and TASK_B, with TASK_A taking 15mins to run and TASK_B runs after
TASK_A completes. Let say at 11:59PM a user submitts the job and TASK_A starts to run(which is ok) My question
is what happens after TASK_A completes? Does TASK_B wait until 1AM to run?

No Triggers affect Jobs directly and indirectly Tasks. So, if a Job is started by a Trigger it will run both Task A and B. The Tasks does not care about Triggers - they only care if they were started by a Job.
