Setting Run Time Through API While Not Specifying Temps / Relinquish Back To Schedule After Event

Hello everyone. I am green to the ecobee product line, but I am in search of a solution.

I am wondering if there is a way through an API call to do something similar to the vacation function, but in the reverse manner.

I would like to specify a specific time frame for the thermostat to be occupied while not specifying the heating/cooling temperature set-points. The thought would be that it would just use whatever set-points have already been set on the device for occupied limits. And after the event, the thermostat would fallback to it's weekly schedule whether that is occupied or unoccupied.

Can this be accomplished?
