For all the good it will do, sure, here or there they will likely never be implemented anyway. Sophos really needs to clean up the ideas.sophos.com site and update anything that has been implemented, won't be implemented, or have simply been marked as "being considered" for over two years when the reality is it will probably never happen. I think they should implement a bug tracking style site for ideas so each "considered for a future release" idea actually gets a log that is kept up to date as to the progress of implementation. The ideas website is a great thing but only useful if it is kept up to date, otherwise it is just another forum. We may as well be posting our ideas on Reddit, they would get just about as much attention. I mean come on, when your top idea has 630 votes and was set as "Under Review" and "Under Consideration for a future release" over TWO AND A HALF YEARS ago it doesn't give people much hope.
NTP Server is a small package and UTM9 has it. In some small organization, having a central NTP server is a nice feature. Can you add it into future release?
This feature is under consideration for a future release, though a target version or timeframe is not yet set.
I do however agree that we should stop posting "ideas" here on this forum as this was meant to be a place to discuss bugs and other issues related to V18, not request improvements or new features although it feels like a good place for such requests.
here is a brief overview of the 7' TOP required functions, please check the list below. For me, this is not an encouraging overview at all. However, I think the state of these requirements is sufficient to tell us how Sophos looks at community requirements in the development of SFOS.
I think we all agree that these 7 features would benefit SFOS very much.

I like that last one, implemented, but incomplete, seems to be par for the course.
Just another item we have been asking for updates on (ideas.sophos.com).
The sad thing is most of the comments from Sophos in 2017 were after the v17 release. Yep, we have been told for years things will improve with v18, just wait. Haha...here we are now hoping for v18.5+ to fix issues.
At this rate they will never make it to the podium...
As they speed through the finish, the flags go down
The fans get up and they get out of town
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
and long ago somebody left with the cup
