Summary
When creating an import activity, within the advanced setting section you can populate a setting called "Skip if last import occurred less than the following number of hours ago" and set a value great than 0.

Due to how this setting is stored at this moment, it is not functioning.

Repro
Go to automation studio
Create an automation
Drop in an import activity
within the second tab "import file" open advanced options
select "Skip if last import occurred less than the following number of hours ago" and give value greater than 0
Run the automation, then run it straight after
The import activity will run both times and ignore the advanced setting

Workaround
At this moment there is no workaround, this feature should not be used.
