The Schedule Object resides in an Engine or FAC and is the internal basis for the Scheduling feature. Create a Schedule and use the Scheduling feature to define the items and times when the Schedule writes values to the referenced attributes of the Scheduled Items. Each schedule includes the following:

  • a view of today’s schedule that shows what actions the schedule is currently configured to perform today, including the Default Schedule Command. This view is not available in the SCT.

  • a weekly schedule that uses events for each day (Monday through Sunday) to configure the times when the Schedule writes values to its referenced attributes (Scheduled Items)

  • an exception schedule that uses events to configure exceptions to the weekly schedule (optional)

  • a list of items that the schedule controls (referenced by the schedule, called Scheduled Items) (optional)

  • an effective period that optionally allows you to activate or inactivate the schedule for a selected period of time
