I am looking for a way to convert a 12 hour time format to a 24 hour format. I know that was asked the other way (from 24 to 12 hours) here:


But I don’t know how to convert a {{zap_meta_human_now}} format which is “MM/DD/YY hh:mm (AM/PM)” to DD.MM.YYYY hh:mm (i.e. 31.12.2024 20:04).

Any suggestions?

Thanks for help,

Use the ‘Custom’ tab to specify your own time format.

@Troy Tessalone Thanks, got it.

I converted from:


MM/DD/YY hh:mm A
(the date was: 06/12/24 5:51 PM)




and the result was:

12.06.2024 17:51


Perfect! Thanks a lot.
