Can we capture a tenant-based date/time value?
With CloudWorks, we can schedule based on date/time with a selected time zone, but that is not involved in any user-facing functionality.
As I am working through the new Workflow training, I realize that the platform is now providing interactions with end-users based on date/time values in a selected time zone. This has me thinking again about an internal method of providing "current date" in a model. There are a couple of documented ways to do that, but neither rely explicitly on a tenant date/time/time zone value and therefore can fail more easily.
While I understand that a model has no idea what date/time it is in the geographic region the user is accessing Anaplan, I'm considering if there are ways to capture a "current date" based on the date/time stamp of when a CloudWorks action is executed in a tenant, based on the configured time zone for the executed scheduled job. Being able to capture that attribute would satisfy the need to get a "current date" into the model.
Yes, I know. Deep thoughts. 🤓
