How is time set for custom snapshots?

I want to setup a custom snapshot schedule so I don't have to worry about pruning old snapshots.  How do you select daily or weekly option for custom snapshots?  I see the schedule section where you block out time ranges (like the power time setting for the whole box) but I don't see where you set the frequency or time for the snapshots to be taken.

 

Thanks

So do you just enable one "box" on the time grid in order to get a snapshot at that time?  So each box on the grid that you enable would create a snapshot at that time?


Yes.

 

The manual really should state this more clearly.

If you set the schedule to enable snapshot at a set time everyday, then you get daily snapshots.  Similarly for weekly.  On my main NAS I set enable them at 11 pm daily (and I've checked "only take snapshots with changes").
