Allow to inform arguments when creating schedule

It is useful to inform arguments when creating a schedule because we can make different schedules dynamically using only one code and not needing to create multiple scripts to do so.

    Sure, here it is: The code is prepared to process multiple types of documents, but during the day we only want some of them to be processed (let's say we are prioritizing them). So for types Type1, Type2, Type3 we have a schedule to run them from 9 am to 5 pm. At 7 pm we want to process only Type4 and at 11 pm we want only Type5. This is currently impossible to parametrize. The only alternatives are either setting the types directly in the code based on the current time (not ideal since it requires extra effort to change schedules) or creating N other scripts, based on the number of different "parameters" we want the execution to have.


    The possibility of passing Input Parameters to the scheduled script would solve this.

    This looks like an interesting idea, can you provide a use case example of why this is required in your case?
