#startdateAvailable from FirstSpirit Version 4.0

The system object: #startdate is the time of the last project change at the time of the generation. The generation time defines whether the generation is carried out with a historical or with the current project status (see graphic - is the execution of a generation now or in the future).

The current project status or a historical time can be used as the basis of the generation (generation time).

#startdate is then the last change before this time.

The return value of #startdate is java.util.Date. Therefore, in addition to the fields listed below, the methods of Date can also be invoked.
