Bill,

It is correct.

For your case, I will set the start time and end time as current time. At the 
end, you need to check the "Set as Time Driver" check box. I tested on the 
model data, and it works as I expected.  If you didn't see this check box, you 
may need to download the 4.1 alpha or nightly.
