Hi Chuck,

Way back when I first encountered the job date, it was used for either testing date-dependent programs (e.g. program is supposed to do something different based on a birthdate, period start or end date, etc) or to re-run some job so the reports have a particular date which is not the current date.

I would guess the wish for a job time would be similar reasons -- testing a time-dependent program or to run a report so it has a particular time. I don't think I'd need it as part of production, but that may be just my limited imagination.
