Interval parameter

It would be useful tohave the 'interval' parameter in the pop-up in cognos reports as a possibility to choose from.

When building reports in cognos, the parameter is one of the values that can be selected in the getvalues function, but there is no possibility when running a build report to change this parameter in the pop-up. Please see the print screen as attached.
