Date & Time Import

Date & Time Import

Creates a row containing the current date and time, and any other dates relative to today

Import a date and time data to start your flow

Start your flow off with relative date data. Many APIs require dates to be sent in order to pull the information that you need, but manually adjusting those dates every run kind of defeats the purpose of automation.

This import creates a dataset that is one row, with as many date columns that you need. Each card represents a new column.

Choosing your relative dates

All dates are imported as relative to the current date and time of the run. That means that every time the flow runs, these values will be updated. While building, they will only update if you refresh the step itself, or recalculate the entire flow.

A date that is 0 days offset will be the current date and time. If you choose a positive value, it will be in the future, and a negative value will be in the past.

All values are imported looking like this: 2019-09-18 12:33:09 which is a format of YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss. You can use a Date Formatter step to split that date and time out into smaller parts that you may need.
