    There's an operator called 'Adjust Date' which is very simple to configure.

    Select the attribute you want to adjust, select the unit you want to add(or subtract) in this case minutes, next type in the adjustment value. 


    For more complex calculations or to convert your hour column if it is stored as nominal then the Generate Attribute operator is your friend.  Here you can type something like:


    This will convert your nominal value into a date add 15 minutes and then convert it back into a nominal value.
