This is acknowledg3ed as somethign that was present in BE 2010 R3 and earlier and has been omitted from 2012 -  we are looking at ways to bring it back in a future release.The setting you are looking at does start foorm 07:00 on first day but then repeats for ever there is no end time for later the same day.

One option to work around it is

Create a job definition with 1 stage that repeats daily starting at 07:00

another stage that starts at 09:00 also repeating daily

another stage that starts at 11:00 also repeating daily


repeat above until until 17:00
