You can schedule the time using the UNIX crontab entry format. In this format, you

hyphen mean an inclusive range. For example, to run a task on the 4th, 5th, 6th, 
and 20th of a month, type 4-6,20.

is the legal value for this field (minute, hour, day, month). For example, */15 in the 
Minute field schedules the task to start every 15 minutes. You can type the 
contracted names of months and days of the week, which are the first three 
letters: Aug, Jul, Mon, Sat, etc. However, the contracted names cannot be
