English term or phrase: the starting and ending times
"You can restrict the synchronization deployment to be executed only during a defined time period. Enter the starting and ending times."

The above are the instructions. The screen shows two empty fields where the user will enter the two times.

Does anyone recommend one phrasing over another to express "starting/ending time", e.g., start/end time, beginning/ending time, etc.

TIA!
