Description

Seconds, plus and minus, to scatter a date and time by.

An absolute date can be scattered to provide a degree of randomness. This randomness can be useful to scatter triggers across a range of times without needing to individually adjust each trigger.

Scatter is a seconds value representing the number of seconds, plus and minus, a date and time can be adjusted by. A scatter of 600 seconds, can scatter a 07:00 date between 06:50 and 07:10.

scatter is an integer. If scatter is omitted, the default 300 is used. scatter must be between 60 and 43200, inclusive.
