Add more frequency options to Event Aggregator automatic imports
Right now, the automatic import frequency options in Event Aggregator go from hourly to daily with no options in between. Those are hugely different for how up to date the calendar would be. I'd like either a few options in between (ie every two hours, every three hours, every six hours) or the ability to manually choose the frequency.

I would like to see a custom update interval added for hours between imports. Having 1 hour and then 1 day with nothing in between is not very helpful. I'd also like to see a start and stop time for imports as no one is updating calendars overnight and there's no reason for the imports to be running in our off-hours.

I see a lot of suggestions for new periods between imports. "2 Hours", "4 Hours", "4 Days".
Instead of trying to figure out just which new periods would be most valuable, I suggest we add 1 new option:
Custom Import Interval (0.1 to 1000 Hours) _____
The field would have a text entry box that would accept values from 0.1 to 1000.
This would allow refreshes as frequently as every 6 minutes (0.1 hours) up to as long as 41.67 days.
It would allow complete control over how often to perform each refresh.

Add an option between "daily" and "weekly" to run imports. Many of my 300+ subscriptions are updated a couple of times per week... so a 72-hour option would be perfect.
We need something in between hourly and daily scheduled imports. Hourly exceeds our maximum daily imports before all feeds are updated, but daily is not frequent enough. Thank you.
