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

scatter integer


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.
