Can I schedule an hourly inventory update to run some minutes after the hour?

Yes, you can!

In the Data Feed settings of EZ Inventory, there's an option to specify the minute offset in 5-minute increments:

Schedule Shopify inventory sync every 1 hour at 15 minutes after the hour.

This is very useful in cases where your supplier's inventory feed is also getting updated hourly at the top of the hour and may take a few minutes to complete.

For example, if your supplier's feed usually gets updated within 5 minutes after the hour, then setting the inventory update schedule to run at 15 minutes after the hour will make sure the source feed data is up-to-date before using it to update your inventory levels in Shopify.
