Schedules an event to run only once.Schedules a hook which will be triggered by WordPress at the specified UTC time. The action will trigger when someone visits your WordPress site if the scheduled time has passed. Note that scheduling an event to occur within 10 minutes of an existing event with the same action hook will be ignored unless you pass unique `$args` values for each scheduled event. Use wp_next_scheduled() to prevent duplicate events. Use wp_schedule_event() to schedule a recurring event.
