was missed, as that would mean it did not run for as long as intended.

I, for one, agree that it would be worth ignoring the start time if blank,
but we should keep the existing behaviour if the start time is specified.

Might be useful to have a way of specifying an elapsed time instead of start
and end.

I think at a minimum if the start time is blank to allow the script to
execute or always execute if current time is greater than start time.

I have some instances that I just want it to start, but end during the end

If others are in agreement, I will make the change and send it as an
