Report: Snapshop of interfaces that will run?

Hello,

Automic AE is at the heart of our active interface runs, about 125 of them, and has been stable for awhile. However, our overall visibility related to the days, times, and contact information, for each interface run, is scattered throughout our document repositories. That is to say that, we do not have an efficient way to generate a report, or a forecast, of upcoming daily, weekend, weekly, or monthly runs. As well, it'd be nice if we could generate a list of interface Business Owners whose interface will run in an upcoming time period. 

Our plan, for now, is to utilize the "Documentation" tab within each Interface's Workflow object window. In addition, we will place four attributes within the Documentation's "Links" tab.
1. DESCRIPTION
2. RUNDAY
3. RUNTIME
4. BUSINESSOWNER

QUESTIONS: 
1. Is it possible to generate a forecast of upcoming interface runs based on all of the active interfaces we have configured in Automic?
2. Is our plan to create the four attributes above, in each interface's WORKFLOW->DOCUMENTATION->LINKS tab, the best approach?
3. What will the script look like for a weekend forecast: Select all Workflow objects where RUNDAY is "Saturday" or "Sunday"?
4. Where does this script get written?
5. Is the expected output triggered by a "Print Preview"?

Thank-You, Tom Matys
