Kalamata olive bread

I want to use the "dough" setting to make this olive bread.  At what point in the cycle do I add olives so they are not chopped too fine?

I've done a kalamata loaf not in a machine, and I actually just knead in the olives when shaping, but if you kind of rough chop them and toss them in with a minute or two left on the final knead, they should be OK
