This question was also asked in Workshop-5; unfortunately it's still the same answer - no. It's part of your learning for the project to anticipate the possible types of commands and their times. But, there really are no (possible) tricks or edge-cases to worry about. Each of the 5 date/time fields are well defined with a number range, or an '*' (meaning all possible valid integers), or from a list of strings. And each command (line) in the crontab-file, and its execution, is independent of all other lines. It doesn't require an extensive list of input combinations to test this project.
