Using the Assign action

Use the Assign action to assign one or more String variables, a user-entered value, or an existing Datetime variable into a Datetime variable.


To assign values to a Datetime variable, do the following:

  1. Double-click or drag the To string action from the Datetime node in the Actions palette.
  2. Select either the Enter the date time or Variable option.
    • If you have selected the Enter the date time option, do the following:
      1. Enter the date time values or select a String variable.
        Note: To enter multiple variables, separate them with single quotation marks. For example, to input the variables date1 and time1, enter 'date1"time1'.
      2. Select the date time format.

        Choose from the prebuilt formats or provide a custom format. For more information about the prebuilt formats, see Date time formats.

    • If you have selected the Variable option, select a variable from the Source date time variable list.
  3. Select the variable to use to store the output from the Destination Datetime variable list.
  4. Click Save.
