Hi,

The time parameter takes all the schedule criteria that are supported - free schedule format and date-time format. Please refer the doc - https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/intelligent-automation/ca-workload-automation-de/12-3/scheduling/schedule-criteria.html

Date Format
Workload Automation DE
 recognizes the date format 
yyyy
/
mm
/
dd
 or 
yyyy
-
mm
-
dd
, where yyyy is the year number, mm is the month number, and dd is the day number.
The following table shows how you would express January 2, 2006 using these two formats:
Format
Example
yyyy/mm/dd
2006/01/02 or 2006/1/02
yyyy-mm-dd
2006-01-02 or 2006-1-02
Hope it helps!

Hi,

Yes , if you have defined a future date and time , then you can go to Services-Event-right-click-List scheduled events - it will list the future date/times when an event will trigger. It will be triggered only when the date time condition is met. 

Hope it helps!
