I want to run the task for every 6 hours on particular time. ie., (12 AM, 6 AM, 12 PM and 6 PM),
1. I tried the normal unix/linux cron format to run the task on every 6 hours, But Ylastic doesn't support the cron format it seems. This is my cron entry (0 0,6,12,18 * * *).
2. How to change the task's time zone. By default it shows -4.00 (Atlantic timezone)

    2. The tasks all run in US eastern TZ currently. It is on our list to add TZ support.
