Remember that you don't add a time to an app, this is quite clear in the instructions. Instead you have a Timer Object placed in the queue before the app you want to start.

Create a Timer Object and give it 15 seconds, move that above the app in the list.

Each item is kept in a starting queue, editing a time in the app itself is not correct since we are trying to ensure things are kept in an appropriate order and that would enable the user to break the rule.

When the next starting period comes up, the queue is emptied then and those apps are started then. In other words those apps need starting off in a later period. Without a timer object each program or file or whatever the documents are in the queue, they are all started with 1 ms between them in the order of the queue.

Alt + S and Alt + O? for situations Save and OK? Perhaps I can merge them as well.

Alt = O on the flight generator page saves changes but Alt + S operates the Search button.

Pages with OK buttons (ALT+O) we might not necessarily leave when we save the changes.
Pages with Save buttons (ALT+S) we would normally leave the page after saving the changes.
