- To create an overnight schedule, e.g. a Sunset to Sunrise operation, two events need to be created. The first schedule to run from Sunset to 11:59pm and the second one to run from Midnight to Sunrise.
- Recurring schedules with no end date actually expire after one year. The expired schedule would need to be recreated once per year.
