Description

Evaluates an expression at a given point in time.
Optional, we can start a script with the result of the query.
Please use Schedule.Release later to remove schedule from list. Non repeating scheduled items are free automatically for you.
You define the timestamp with hours, minutes and seconds parameter at which to call the script. Plugin checks regularly if time stamp is reaches and calls as soon as current time is greater or equal the given timestamp. So calls can be delayed if FileMaker is busy!
Our plugin does not provide persistence. You need to schedule things in your scripts if you need them. When FileMaker quits, the plugin forgets the list of schedules.
