Temporary additions to allowlist

Is there a way to add a particular domain to the allowlist for a limited time (say an hour or a day)?

Context: I sometimes have links that I want to follow once and once only, for example (genine) unsubscribe links in emails. They are often blocked by NextDNS so I have to manually add the domain to the whitelist, do the unsubscription, then manually remove the domain.

It would be great to have a way to say "allow domain xyz.com for 1 hour" via the UI to streamline this. If it's not part of the UI I may look into coding up a simple script to do it.

    I’ve asked for this or the ability to temporarily deactivate nextdns.  Neither seem to be getting any traction. 
    for now. I go through the hassle of manually deactivating then reactivating.  
    you can script it, or use “shortcuts” on iOS.  Someone made a nice iOS shortcut that works by double tapping the back of iPhone!  It’s pretty neat

    You can copy-paste the link to unsubscribe in Tor browser or Opera browser with the VPN on. This are invisible to NextDNS once they are connected.

    There are other browsers with VPN but I don't know how private are.

    Didnt this used to be a feature? I sure as hell saw it on the promo page. Would be nice to have it again.

    I'd like to +1 this one.

    When I get spam from vendors who have harvested my email address, oftentimes the unsubscribe links are rightfully blocked because they interact with their CRM/spam systems.  I'd like to be able to whitelist these for, say, an hour, and then have them go back to being blocked after I've unsubbed.

    +1  This should be a button from the Logs page when a hostname is blocked.   `[ Allow For 30 Min ]` or similar.
