WTH can't i test an automation against the recorded history?

It would be nice to be able to run an automation against a specific timeframe in the recorded history to test.

Some automations run infrequently (triggers/conditions like sunset or garbage connection), which means that you have to wait until the next time that event/condition occurs to see that it actually performed as intended.

If you could let the automation run through a timeframe you select, and create a log/ traces (instead of executing the actions *). Then it would be easy to see the results and troubleshoot problems.

'* By not executing the actions it can run faster than real time without firing of light shows, door locks or washing machines…
