Azure scheduler - Job collection and units

Question

I want to make use of Azure scheduler in one of my project. I would like to start with "Standard" pricing tier which entitles me 50 jobs per collections and 10 job collections per unit. 

I understand that I can configure one job collection and in that I can add 50 jobs but I don't understand the meaning of 10 job collection per unit. I don't see any option of configuring Unit. Can you please explain the details how the unit and collection to be configured? Also, under "Standard" pricing tier, am I entitled to have 50 (jobs per collection) * 10 (job collection per unit) = 500 jobs? Pls clarify.

Most of my scheduled activities will be of one time activity i.e. once activity is done at scheduled time, that job is no more in use. So can I remove this job from job collection(once work is done) and add new job? Suppose I don't remove this job from the job collection then will this completed job purge automatically from job collection and allow me to keep configure new jobs in the collection as long as I don't reach to 50 jobs in job collection?

Regards,

When you have 10 job collections running under Standard plan, it is considered as one unit and based on units billing is done. If you have Premium plan 10,000 job collections are considered as one unit for billing. If you need more clarity about Scheduler pricing, you may contact our billing support team by creating a free support ticket - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request

To answer your second question, I'm moving this thread to Azure Scheduler forum to connect with the right experts.
