please take a look here: https://johanvanneuville.com/avd/azure-virtual-desktop-session-hosts-cost-savings/

Set auto startup schedules / Set auto shutdown schedules
To schedule the start/stop based on schedule this might be helpful: https://charbelnemnom.com/schedule-azure-vm-using-azure-function/

Hi Adreas,

Thanks for the info. Now, should we have a machine setup on the Azure and install the Group Policy Management on that and set this up? Are there new ADMX template available for this?

Thanks
John

Hi @ORYX360-8945 ,

so far I am using the related default configuration options in GPOs to get the jobs done.
I don't know if there are new admx templates available.
