Random Minute, Random Hour and Multiple Time values

Hello there,
Recently SetCronJob offers two new features: Random Time (Minute and Hour) and Multiple time values (select multiple values of Minute, Hour, Day, Month and Weekday).

Random Minute and Random Hour

It's a great feature that help you set cron job running at random time. For example a cron job with time setting
Example 1 - every hour at random minute
will run on every hour, at a random minute, like 0:14, 1:28, 2:01, 3:54, 4:16,...
With both Random minute and Random hour checked, your cron job will be run on daily basic, at a random time, e.g yesterday 1:17, today 14:32, tomorrow 20:08,...
The feature is available for Silver and Gold account. You can now upgrade the premium users and take advantage of it!

Multiple time values

You can select multiple values of Minute, Hour, Day, Month and Weekday. It really helps when

- You need to run at a range of time, e.g. from Monday to Friday only; or from 1 AM to 4 AM then 5 PM to 8 PM.
- You wish to select time interval with custom starting and ending value, e.g. "Every 5 minutes" is not only 0, 5, 10, 15,..., 50, 55 but also 2, 7, 12, 17, 22, ..., 52, 57; or even "Every 10 minutes from 12 to 42".
- Select any time value as you need.
To select multiple values from time selection box, use Control - click or Command - click (for Mac); "select all" to make all values selected; or with "quick select" tool that help you select all values with a time interval and custom starting/ending value.
