    I have the following queries:

    • Can i set up multiple schedules during a day for when all traffic is blocked? Example: 9AM-11AM, 6-8PM, 11PM-8AM? 
    • Is it possible to selectively block search terms - for example fortnite searches from you tube app on phones or TV?

    You should be able to create multiple rules to cover different times. 

    And there is no way to block search terms, those Firewalla can't see on the network.

    Can URL blocking policy be performed per device/IP and per user? Also, is the full set of 27 OpenDNS categories available for use in Firewalla gold?

    The blocking policy can be per device, per group of devices (Gold, or you are on firewalla red/blue beta), and per network segment (gold only)

    So is tiktok still an unknown or has it been added to one of the categories? Can I add new sites to the categories to simplify management?

    Or are categories based on opendns categories and so those can't be changed?

    tiktok is social networking.   Categories are computed from various sources, so you can ask us to change anything, if it make sense, we can override
