    Looking at some older RFEs. CSM implemented the ability so that instead of scheduiing a task to run at some interval or on a certain set of days at a certain time, you can instead choose to "run at" a given time in the future. This is a "one time" schedule for the task. Course that means in your example you'd issue the "run at 23/2/19" and then after that runs at that time you would then have to call "run at 23/3/19" to set up the next time it will run. So it would be manual and not automatic. But does that cover your use case here where the schedule is actually at a more random set of times?
