[IDV #VZI-690550]: excluding hourly time frames from bundle


I looked at the GINI images and I see the problem you describe. Although, it is 
still "manual intervention" you can set skip factors ("Select every other one") 
when selecting times, but that may not be satisfactory especially since the 
pattern is not always consistent, if you know what I mean.

The long term solution would be to do this with an ISL script, but the ISL does 
not have the necessary functionality to this yet, unfortunately. We will have 
to put this feature in the plans.

Best Wishes,
