More Date and Time Manipulation Capabilities

AutomationThe Automation Rules functionality has been extended with several new operators. These operators have been added to support date and time manipulation.

The new operators are:

  • is_monday
  • is_tuesday
  • is_wednesday
  • is_thursday
  • is_friday
  • is_saturday
  • is_sunday
  • year
  • month
  • day
  • hour
  • minute
  • second
  • day_of_week
  • day_of_year
  • utc

These methods make it possible to check, for example, whether the anticipated assignment of a task falls within a weekend, extract the year from a Warranty expiry date field, or convert the value of a date/time field to the UTC time zone.
