convertMsToSeconds

A Workflow Engine function that converts a millisecond timestamp to seconds.

If the supplied time is not a number, or if its length does not indicate a millisecond time value (if it does not have the same length as a current millisecond timestamp), then the function returns false.

This function is available as a feature of the Add-ons v2.4 download and later.

This function is available for event, alert, and Situation workflows.
