Automatic Allows system updates to proceed on the device as soon as they are available.
Windowed Restricts the installation of system updates to the specified time period.

Postponed Delays the installation of system updates for 30 days, after which the device user is prompted to install the update.

Annual OTA Update Freeze Periods

Under Update Schedule, select the Add button to display a table where you can create an annual window during which system updates are not applied to the device regardless of what is set in the Installation Policy section.

Choose a start date and an end date with the calendar pickers. You can add multiple freeze periods. Freeze periods cannot exceed 90 days or overlap. Additionally, they must be separated by at least 60 days from another freeze period. That is, if you set a freeze period of January 01 to January 31, the next earliest freeze period that you can set is April 02.
