Queue a backtest in multicharts same symbol on multiple time frames?

I would like to backtest a strategy on the same symbol but different time frames. Right now I am doing one by one having to open multiple multicharts portfolio backtesting windows. If I don't do this the results come out all as one and I want to see the results per timeframe. Is there a way to "queue" a backtest the same strategy to find the optimal parameters for the strategy on different time frames in multicharts? If not in multicharts is there another program that will dot his?

This is bothering me as well.. I am currently doing this by starting several MultiCharts instances and doing all optimizations in parallel and integrate the results later in Excel.
As far as I know NinjaTrader 7 is able to optimize the time frame.

This feature, being able to optimize on data series, would be a great in MC. Just came across a feature request for this, and if I may spam, please vote for it.
