Date parameters

Calling for a list of any assets that have a date/time association without date parameters will return the current date. Adding date parameters can expose multiple chosen dates.

‘Wrapper’ events signify a group or section of events. The ‘wrapper’ events can update during the progress of the rest of the events within the session, displaying the same status values as the schedules.
