Hi Lorne Tyndale!

Go in to RDCatch, open the event, check *Make OneShot*, set the time to a  
time in the near future, click *Save As New*, click OK
This will make a new event that will run then disappear after running.

This could make this process easier by adding another tick box next to  
Make OneShot in the Edit Event Dialogs in RDCatch. It could be called  
something like *Run As Soon As Possible/After Saved/After I Click OK*. If  
the Make OneShot box is also check the event would just disappear, however  
if it is not check the event would run, the box would get unticked and the  
event would run on the normal schedule.

With something like this in place, all one would need to do to open the  
event, tick the *Run As Soon As Possible/After Saved/After I Click Ok* box  
and click OK. This would also be handy for those time you are testing new  
events out and do not want to have to keep setting the time forward. You  
can just tick this box each time you come in and make your adjustments.
