|Run Between Hours||This option is only displayed for "Hourly" schedules and allows you to select the specific hourly interval that the scheduled report will be run within.|
|Run At Minute (Hour)||Shown only for "Hourly" schedules and sets the approximate minute within the hour (in local time), which the scheduled report will be run at.|
