number

To convert a given value to a number

It returns the values of different data types as a number. You can imagine this is needed quite often! ๐Ÿค“

The result depends on the data type. Some examples:

  • A text consisting only of digits is converted to a number, for example,

  • date and time are mapped in Unix time.

  • In an appointment, Ninox refers by default to the start, if you don't explicitly refer to the end with endof().

  • A time interval will be converted to milliseconds.

  • Applied to a choice field, it returns the number of the selected option.

number("000075639")

Result: 75639 (the text is now a number and can be processed in further calculations)
