Scheduler is more like project scheduler. Scheduler will help to create trigger events based on recurrence date. Presently scheduler will be used for setting frequency by which gadgets get updated on dashboard for eg. weekly, monthly, daily etc. In future it will be used in email sending, sms sending etc.
Scheduler can be started from today or future date but it can not be started from past dates.
