How to combine future contracts files (intraday chart) at a prec

Support Request:

Currently, I use the join feature as requested in the documentation. I understand that the switch is made whenever the new contract's volume exceed the volume of the previous file.

However, I usually never trade a future contract on expiring day, because I want to avoid first notice. Therefore, I need to switch contract at the end of the day before expiring day, even if volumes haven't already exceeded the ones of the previous file (hope it's clear)

So :
1- Is there a way to do it ? In the documentation, it seems only possible for historical charts
2- If, not, do you intend to enable it ?

Thank you very much for your help

For backtesting purposes, I need the datas to be as I trade them, hence my question
Thank you
