Use time () as a precondition

Go to solution


Does anyone know if/ how you can use the string from time() as a precondition in a sequence? My workplace has a 2 shift pattern, so for all intents, I want to use any time up to 0300 on day 2 as the same day as  0800 on day 1. I want to call a checkout sequence to run in the first test if the working day, so will use date() as a precondition as well.


I have tried using the val() function, but it doesn't recognise the hh:mm:ss format.
