timestamp(1640991540010)
Result:
  • 12/31/2021 23:59 (US)
  • 31/12/2021 23:59 (UK)
(on December 31, 2021, at 23:59 in Berlin – Germany (CET))
1
number(timestamp('Date + Time'))
Result: 1640991540000 (instead of 1640991540010 as above) (with 'Date + Time' being
  • 12/31/2021 23:59 (US)
  • 31/12/2021 23:59 (UK)
on December 31, 2021at 23:59 in Berlin – Germany (CET))

timestamp(format(now(),"x"))
Result:
  • 07/02/2021 11:15 AM (US)
  • 02/07/2021 11:15 (UK)
