There is a way to do what you want to do, but in practice it is seldom necessary, so I suspect there may of a misunderstanding lurking somewhere. Generally if you schedule a project it will schedule as much time for the project as there is available. Available means, during a period of time when the object is within its acceptable IQ time period and there are no other projects scheduled.

I suppose if a higher priority project was scheduled in the middle of the available time, you may wish to schedule before and after that other project. Is that what you are asking about?

Regardless, the auto scheduler isn't yet advanced enough to do this on its own, but you can schedule by hand. To schedule a project to start at a specific time, use the start/end time selections. You can either drag the vertical lines from the ends of the NightBar, or enter the start and/or end times manually. Then select your project and click the Schedule button. Assuming the time period you selected is within the acceptable IQ period, it should start scheduling at the start time you selected.

If there is a higher IQ period that starts after the start time your selected, it may prefer to start later, when the higher IQ period begins. You may want to just let it do that. But if you want to force it, set the end time to just prior to the start of the higher IQ period. Then schedule.

Once I get the first update finished I am going to turn my attention to making video tutorials which should help with this sort of thing.

Cool!  As an FYI, what I'm doing to accomplish this now is to duplicate the project 'A' for the object, so I have two projects A and A' ... both of them now have an IQ A window of 130min, so the scheduler will put A from 0:00 to 60:00 and then schedule A' from 61:00 to 121:00 ... nice!
