Full Description

Skip scheduled builds if nothing has changed in the repo.
By popular request on UserVoice, you can now specify that a scheduled build not run when nothing has changed in your code.
You can control this behavior using an option on the schedule.
By default, we will not schedule a new build if your last scheduled build (from the same schedule) has passed and no further changes have been checked in to your repo.
