Convert a date and time to the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT) not counting leap seconds.
See UNIX to use the number of milliseconds elapsed instead of seconds.
|start||Date and time to be converted to epoch format.||Date & Time||TRUE|
|output||Date and time in epoch format. Seconds are counted since January 1, 1970, midnight UTC/GMT, not counting leap seconds.||Date & Time|
If you need the epoch format for the current date and time, use a Now card and drag and drop the date field from the Now card into the start field on the Epoch function card.
