When a record is created and trigger executes (after insert)- updating a field, I want to calculate the time difference between the last modified date and the created date in seconds. If it's greater than 10 seconds update the field as true else false. Can someone tell how to calculate in seconds?
Returns the difference in the number of days - it's like yesterday- today - 1
If you multiply by 24 (24 hours a day ) returns the value in hours
then by 60 (60 minutes) returns the value in minutes
then again another 60 (60 seconds) returns the value in seconds
Difference in seconds
This sounds like a problem I was having - creating a formula checkbox to determine if a record had been updated or not, labeled "IsUpdated". Originally tried just the simple formula:
CreatedDate <> LastModifiedDate
But that always came back TRUE - assuming due to milliseconds difference.
Solution I found to work instead was individually comparing each piece of the DateTime fields, first matching the dates, then breaking the timestamp into Hours and Minutes for comparison.
NOT( DATEVALUE(LastModifiedDate) = DATEVALUE(CreatedDate) && HOUR( TIMEVALUE(LastModifiedDate)) = HOUR( TIMEVALUE(CreatedDate)) && MINUTE( TIMEVALUE(LastModifiedDate)) = MINUTE( TIMEVALUE(CreatedDate)) )
