A user wants a workflow to run every hour at xx:45 (15 minutes before the top of each hour).

A possible solution is to use "with a gap of" in the recurring execution option.

Example
A workflow with 'generate at runtime' attribute enabled is executed at 7:45AM PST.

In the recurring execution options Frequency tab, the "with a gap of" is set to 01:00 to previous run.

In the Time frame tab, the 'force adjustment on time frame' is unselected.

In this example, I left the Days and Range tabs as the default, but can be modified to the user's preferences.

Result
The workflow ran at 7:45AM PST. Since the gap is set to every one hour, the next run will be 8:45AM PST because it is one hour after the last run.
