Initial schedule

Is there a way for me to use multiple schedule functions in initialize that access the pipeline??
or use a schedule function outside of the initialize

Hi JJ,

One of several ways multiple schedule functions in initialize can access pipeline is by accessing the pipeline output from the context variable, one of two parameters required by a function within schedule_function (the other being data). Passing in the name of your pipeline to pipeline_output will output a pandas.DataFrame that can be stored within a context variable.

All schedule functions must be called within initialize, since it is called only once and initializes state and scheduling for the strategy. Feel free to read more about these functions here and let me know if I can help with anything else.
