If you don't need let's say start and end time your add-on should define a timer rule type not specifying that start and and time is supported for this type.It is not about the Kodi timers themselves. They work and we supply what is needed to create a timer rule.
What you are describing is just one of many possible timer types. You describe a manual timer matching a given title and start and end time. But there can be done much sophisticated things, especially with epg event based timer rule types. But again, the add-on must define the correct timer types for this. It's a very flexible and powerful concept.
The issue is about the timer rule presentation in the rules overview window. I described an example of the epg event based timer, where original event may be long not present anymore, but rules require to show something as a description next to generic description line of "epg based recurrent timers".
