Trigger, actually: 7 to 7 11/17/15Matt Tollerson

I need to create (a) trigger(s) to execute my task at different frequencies depending-upon the time of day. I want my task to trigger every 15 minutes from 7a.m. till 7p.m. and then only trigger every hour from 7p.m. till 7a.m. I also want it to not trigger on Saturday nor Sunday. From what I can tell: exceptions let me do that but then stop triggering alltogether. Please write me back if you have an idea. Thanks in advance, Matt T.
