Why isn't there a "Multiple Schedule" option?

This is a repeated request that keeps getting the same response "We'll pass it along.", "your feedback is valuable", and other similar BS.  It is a common request and an easy fix, so here we go again.

 

Please explain why there is not an option to set multiple schedules to toggle between depending on who is home.  I'm not looking for a work around by using the ECO mode or other features.  Instead, I (and many others) want the feature to set more than one schedule and to select which one we want on a given day.  This is a basic feature on most thermostats that came before Nest.  

Please refrain from empty replies as to how you appreciate my feedback and that you'll look into it.  Instead, I want to know why Google refuses to add this feature.  Also, please do not lock down this thread until a satisfactory resolution has been provided.

Hey davidbutts77,

We appreciate your interest however; we don't have any news to share about a Multiple Schedule option for your Nest Thermostat. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback.

I also suggest that you send feedback by following this link. Let me know if you have other questions or concerns, otherwise I’ll be locking this thread after 24 hours. 

Best,

Mel

Hi Mel,

I don't believe you actually read my post.  As a "community specialist" I expect more.   I requested an actual response as opposed to "we appreciate your interest" and "we're always looking to improve".  Obviously those canned statements are BS and completely worthless.  Please try again.  

Allow me to reiterate:

I do have two additional questions/concerns:
1) the link you provided was of no help as I do not use a google home app.  Why would you provide a different avenue for voicing my concern instead of making an actual effort to address it?  

2) Why are you shutting this thread down?  It went 3 weeks without a response, then the only response contained (1) a meaningless statement that avoided the question (2) a link that was of no help and (3) the threat to shut down a reasonable request for a basic feature to most thermostats. 

 

Looking forward to an actual response.

Still waiting for a response.
