In a target group configuration, a relative time specification can be used for fields with the data type Date or Date with time. Normally, an absolute time specification, in the form of time and date, is specified via the drop-down menu. In the text field below you can enter relative time information such as last year or +5 days.
In the field for relative time specifications you can enter relative time specifications like e.g. last year or +1 day.
Please note that relative time entries can only be made in English.
The following entries are possible, for example:
- now (returns the current date including time e.g.: 01.01.2020 09:31:13)
- today (returns the current date without time e.g.: 01.01.2020 00:00:00)
- yesterday, tomorrow
- 10 September 2000 (Please enter only four-digit years)
- +1 day, -1 day
- +1 week, -1 week
- +1 month, -1 month,
- +1 year, -1 year
- +1 week 1 days 4 hours 2 seconds, -1 week 1 days 4 hours 2 seconds
- next Monday, last Monday
- next month, last month
- next year, last year
Before you use a relative time for a newsletter dispatch, please test the result of the target group configuration for plausibility.
All text entries are used to determine a point in time.
The entry "february 2022" determines the first time of February in the year 2022, i.e. 01.02.2022 00:00 UTC.
