Current Time Condition

Top  Previous  Next

The "Current Time" condition checks the parameters of the current time. The examples of acceptable time notation are given below:


05:00 PM
01:12:45 AM


If neither "AM" nor "PM" is given, the standard numeration from 00:00 to 23:59 is applied.


You may also add a date in the following format: dd/mm/yyyy. The date must stand in front of the time value, for example:


01/05/2008 12:20
08/12/2009 05:12:02 PM
15/11/2017 17:14


Also, you may check the current day of week. The acceptable values of weekdays are listed below:


Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat


Sunday is considered the first day of week. So if you use expressions such as "is less than", "is greater than", take into account, that "Sun" is less than "Mon", "Sat" is greater than "Fri" and so on. To make it easier to understand, you can mentally assign each day of week a number from 1 to 7, "Sun" being "1" and "Sat" being "7".


You can't combine weekdays and date/time values in one condition. For example, the following notation is NOT allowed:


Current Time is between Wed and 12/04/2008
Current Time is equal to Fri 04:50


To check both day of week and date and/or time, you must create two or more conditions. For instance:


Current Time is equal to Wed

and Current Time is 12/04/2008


Note: if you use comma as the decimal separator ("," instead of "."), you will need to separate values in a list with semicolons. For example:


Current Time is in list 07:00; 18:00; 10:00 PM


You can apply the usual comparative operators to the current time, except for "is maximum" and "is minimum". See examples below:


Current Time is less than 08:00
Current Time is between 06:30 AM and 06:30 PM
Current Time is outside 22:00 and 23:50
Current Time is greater than 20:15
Current Time is equal or greater than 09:12 PM
Current Time is in list 07:00, 18:00, 10:00 PM
Current Time is less than 12/06/2008
Current Time is greater than 22/08/2009 12:40
Current Time is equal to Mon
Current Time is between Tue and Fri
Current Time is outside list Sat, Sun
