Set hourly offset

There are already suggestions for comprehensive scheduling, which would be wonderful. It also would be nice to be able to say "every hour on the half hour", so like 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, etc. I have multiple cameras that are capturing time-lapse photos of different views (this is my first using 24/7 TimeLapse), and it's nice to be able to offset them given our limited upload bandwidth.

Do you have any examples of applications with such features? What I am concerned is allowing such functionality is going to cause more problems than it solve because another user is going to ask for more complex scheduling on top of this which means designing and providing this functionality is not going to be easy. e.g. what you have stated is to capture every hour at specified minute; another user could be looking at every 2 hr at specified minute, etc.... Until we get a clear picture on how this is going to work for different cases/scenario, we won't be able to consider such feature. In other words, this feature can become so complex that few can figure out how to use it, imagine an alarm clock app doing what you specified, how do you think it is going to look like?
