iPad reboot on recurring schedule

We have some point of sale iPads in Single App Mode that we'd like to reboot on a regular basis as the POS app and Bluetooth connections, etc. seem to get wonky over time. With a previous release, we can now reboot from the Management Commands, but we'd like to move to a more proactive approach. Thanks for considering!

One would think this FR will be possible in the near future, since we can send an iOS Wallpaper to our student loaner devices each day. The framework is already available.

I have a batch of 12 iPads that tend to drop out of Wi Fi and need a forced restart to reconnect. They are used in Single App Mode with Safari and a limited selection of Websites in a building that's open 24/7. At the moment the staff in the area are having to force restart the iPads several times a week. I'd like to set up a daily reboot at a quiet time, maybe staggered so they don't all shut down at once. Any advice on how to do this with JAMF?

So I did some digging and it looks like I can do this manually:

From the Group > View > Action > Send Remote Commands > Restart Device so I guess I need a way to automate this in the API

I dont think you can automate that with iPads. I could be wrong though
