Converts a date and time to the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT) not counting leap seconds, which is the standard date format for some systems. See Epoch to use the number of seconds elapsed instead of milliseconds.

Input Fields

  • start: (required) the date & time you want to convert.

Output Fields

  • output: the date & time in unix format: milliseconds since January 1, 1970, midnight UTC/GMT, not counting leap seconds.


If start is 2016-09-07T00:01:25.670Z then output is 1473206485670

If you need the UNIX format for the current date and time, use a Now card and drag/drop the date field from the Now card into the start field on the UNIX card.
