How to set the reporting timestep in open studio ?

Hi. I'm new to openstudio and I need to run a simulation and collect the results with a timspet of 10 minutes. In the simulation settings, I already set the simulation to 6 timsteps per hour. However the results seem to come out as hourly (average ?), even in the Time Series bar. Any hints on how to see the results (zone temperatures, mainly) at the 10 minute interval that I need ? Thanks in advance.

@Mariana Vieira are you using DView to plot the time-series outputs from the OpenStudio Application, or a different tool?

In addition to setting the simulation to 6 timesteps per hour, you have to specify for each output variable what reporting frequency you want. It defaults to "Hourly", but you should switch it to "Timestep".
