When a scheduled task is created / updated/ update calendar, Task launches are recalculated.
In this case, when you create task, and want the task to run every 5 mins, with duration 20 mins from 08:00 to 20:00.
For example, if the task creation time is 16:30; those launches in the past 20mins will also be launched, because of launches scheduled from 16:11 to 16:30 are still inside the duration period.

In order to avoid this from occurring, you can add a non-simultaneity condition based on the same Uproc or modify the Validity Date of the Tasks so that it points to the future.

Fix Status: No Fix
