Overview of Set date and time Action

Automation Workshop includes Set date and time Action, that performs automated batch date and time modifications for specified files and folders. Provide some of the various available settings such as file masks, file dates, times and attributes as well as variables provided by Trigger or other Action. Supports changing of creation, modification and last accessed dates.

Features & highlights:
  • Set file date and time using simple UI interface or more advanced YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS-mmmnnnn format. Advanced format is in order: year, month, date, hours (24 hour format), minutes, seconds. And additionally milliseconds (3 digits), microseconds (3 digits) and nanoseconds (1 digit).
  • Supports many date and time input formats with any separator (or without), e.g.: 2019-05-29--17-59-15-0000000 or 2019:05:29 17:59:15.5007500 or 20190102160506.
  • Specifying seconds, milliseconds, microseconds and nanoseconds is entirely optional. When specifying only a first part of date or using a short format, it is automatically expanded to full date, e.g. 19-1-25 5:25 is automatically converted to 2019-01-25 05:25:00.0000000.
  • The lowest and highest supported year number is 1600 and 9999, respectively. Unless specified, month and date number value is set automatically to 01, while hours, minutes and seconds values are set to 00.
