New: Opens the New Schedule dialog box, enabling you to enter the new schedule name.
Rename: Renames the schedule.

Delete: Deletes the schedule name.

Scenario Start Time: Opens the Delay Scenario Start dialog box, enabling you to start running a manual or goal-oriented scenario at a later point in time.
