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