Splunk Enteprise Security Alert time range settings: How can I configure this time range?

Hi Splunkers,

I have to schedule a Saved Search in Splunk Enterprise Security that must be executed in a specific time range.
The task itself is not a problem; I followed  Configure > Content > Content Management -> Create new content -> Saved search and then, cause the search must sent a mail at every activation, I have chosen New Alert.

The problem is the required time range: this alert must detect some kind of activity performed outside job office hour, so 18:01 of current day - 08:59 of day after (this every day). 
So, for example, the search must be "active" starting from today at 18:01 until tomorrow at 08:59.

My doubt is: how can I configure this time range? 
This is the alert configuration window:

I thougth about using Crontab, but I'm not sure I can configure a time range wich has not the same day for starting and ending time.
I thougth also about the All time panel but I didn't find anithing that help me to configure this particular time range.
