Hi Jennifer,

I believe the granularity is only a way to group notices together, and
doesn't actually affect when it runs.  The cron settings are what link a
particular granularity to a frequency.  So if your server already has a
cron job for triggers with no granularity, then removing the granularity
from your trigger would allow it to be run the next time the cron job
sequence runs.  However, it is possible your trigger has already been
getting processed and piling up a lot of "pending" notices.  If this is the
case, then removing the granularity might send those "pending" notices,
which may be redundant or outdated.  So it's probably best to coordinate
with your server/database administrator.

Here is some documentation about the cron script, in case your server admin
needs it:
