For Zoho Services only:


I'm actually part of a bigger team at Ascent Business Solutions where we have support technicians and project consultants. Support is for smaller technical fixes but this can include developments, reports or integrations; depending on the size of the task. Projects are for more time-consuming developments such as revamps of the Zoho Suite of apps or on-site training. The advantage of a team is that if I am out-of-office for a day or so, there is always someone at Ascent Business Solutions who can deal with any queries/issues you may have.

Our support rates can be found and purchased at http://ascentbusiness.co.uk/zoho-support-2. A support bundle doesn't have an expiry date. So whether we can do what you want within the bundle and a year later need further support, if there are minutes left on the bundle then there is no additional charge.

Our project rates for bigger developments can be found at http://ascentbusiness.co.uk/crm-solutions/zoho-crm-packages-prices and will involve a dedicated project consultant along with developers who will hold your hand through the development process.

If you want help building a solution for one of the Zoho Apps in the Zoho Suite, contact us on 0121 293 8140 (UK) or by email at info@ascentbusiness.co.uk. You can also visit our website at http://ascentbusiness.co.uk.

I regularly build and specialize in 2-way API integrations for Xero, Shopify and eBay.

Zoho Deluge: Calculate Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds between two Timestamps

What?
A very quick article to calculate the time between two timestamps and break it down into days, hours, minutes and seconds.

Why?
I've done this in lots of other systems but here's one in Zoho Deluge.

How?
We're going to make use of the .toLong() function applied to a datetime datatype variable which will return the Unix seconds.
copyraw
// the now time
v_NowTime  = zoho.currenttime;
//
// correction: I want to specify a from datetime
v_NowTime  = '2021-09-21 21:27:15';
//
// now specify a to datetime (we're doing a working day so we add 1 business day)
v_NextTime = zoho.currentdate.addBusinessDay(1).toString("yyyy-MM-dd ") + "12:00:00";
//
// convert to seconds
v_NowEpoch = v_NowTime.toLong();
v_NextEpoch = v_NextTime.toTime().toLong();
//
// calculate seconds in between
v_UnixSeconds = v_NextEpoch - v_NowEpoch;
//
// determine days
v_Days = floor(v_UnixSeconds / 1000 / 60 / 60 / 24);
info v_Days;
v_UnixSeconds = v_UnixSeconds - (v_Days * 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24);
//
// determine hours
v_Hours = floor(v_UnixSeconds / 1000 / 60 / 60);
info v_Hours;
v_UnixSeconds = v_UnixSeconds - (v_Hours * 1000 * 60 * 60);
//
// determine minutes
v_Minutes = floor(v_UnixSeconds / 1000 / 60);
info v_Minutes;
v_UnixSeconds = v_UnixSeconds - (v_Minutes * 1000 * 60);
//
// determine seconds remaining
v_Seconds = floor(v_UnixSeconds / 1000);
info v_Seconds;
//
v_DayGrammar = if(v_Days == 1, "DAY", "DAYS");
v_HourGrammar = if(v_Hours == 1, "HR", "HRS");
v_MinGrammar = if(v_Minutes == 1, "MIN", "MINS");
v_SecGrammar = if(v_Seconds == 1, "SEC", "SECS");
//
info v_Days + " " + v_DayGrammar + ", " + v_Hours + " " + v_HourGrammar + ", " + v_Minutes + " " + v_MinGrammar + ", " + v_Seconds + " " + v_SecGrammar ;
// yields: 0 DAYS, 23 HRS, 54 MINS, 11 SECS
