Deploy an object at a future time and date

Deploying an object to the live environment can also be done at a future time and date.

Select-ScheduledDeploy [-DeploymentTime] <DateTime> [-TimeZoneId] <String> [-VCData] <VersionControlledData> [[-Comment] <String>] [-PipelineVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

$item = Get-Item "IE Settings"

Select-ScheduledDeploy -VCData $item -DeploymentTime "11/30/2016 12:00AM" -TimeZoneId "GMT Standard Time" -Comment "Scheduled for Nov 30th, 2016 GMT"

$GPO = Get-Item "IE Settings"
