FMS 17 Schedule Script Repeat by more than 1 hour, but using minutes?

Have you ever wanted to run a schedule script that repeats say once an hour?  No problem in the FMS 17 Web Admin Console.  But how about if you wanted a fraction of an hour like every 90 minutes?  Well, the web UI won't let you put a number more than 60 in for minutes.  So I switched to hours and tried to put in 1.5.  HOWEVER, for hours it will only accept whole numbers.  So 1.5 just truncates down to 1, which is 60 minutes.  I liked it before when I could say either hours or minutes and minutes could be more than just 60.  Maybe they could be 200 minutes, or whatever.  I guess you have to limit them to not more than a day, but still I was used to that in the past. 

 

Anyone else notice thing and find it a bit annoying? 

 

Yes, I can have it repeat every 30 minutes and check the last time it ran to figure out if it was 90 minutes ago before or else exiting the script at 30 and 60 minutes.  But gosh that is just not elegant. 

 

And I know it is being a mild bit picky.
