We’ll check out this powerful new tool for admins and the awesome new time-related formula functions that came with it. We’ll also review the core date-related functions, and then put them all together into some rockin’ formulas to solve some common and creative use cases. No more cowering in fear from Leap Years or wondering why every four years your date formulas all get a day out of whack. No more hacky picklist workarounds for gathering time data. Let’s build confidence with date AND TIME functions and build absolutely bulletproof formulas…fearlessly!
