How do I do a typical timer setup?

I want to setup my lights so that the Royal Blues come on at 8:00AM, then an hour later the  Blues come on, then an hour later the Whites come on. In the evening, I want to reverse this so that the White’s turn off first, then the Blues, then the Royal Blues.

Royal Setting:           80%

Turns on Royal Blue to 80% starting at 8:00 AM. Keep both White and Blue at previous levels (which are 0% because of Timer #6) so set them to “- -“.  The 60m Ramp Period means make the Royal Blues go from 0% to 80% in one hour.

An hour has passed. Now turn on Blues at 9:00AM. Royal Blue should be at 80% right now. No change in Whites (they are still at 0%) and no more changes to Royal Blue so double-dash “- -“ for them too.

Another hour gone by. Now we turn on the Whites at 10:00AM. Both Blue and Royal are at 80% each, so both of those get double-dashes as we don’t need to change them.

Now its 7:00PM at night. Let’s turn off the Whites first. Whites slowly dim from 80% to 0% over the course of an hour (60m Ramp). Leave the Blues and Royals alone (at 80%).
