What are your best practices for determining elapsed time in Automation Anywhere?

Let’s say a bot begins at 11:30pm on December 31, 2023. The bot finishes at 4:00am on January 1, 2024. It had a total runtime of 4 hours, 30 minutes.

How would you programmatically determine the elapsed time in the bot editor using the Datetime packages?

I can make an elaborate block of code with some if/then’s and type conversions between datetime and number values.


But is there a simpler way?

I might recommend looking at the Date and Time Utilities package on the Bot Store.

It has the ability to take two datetime variables and calculate the difference between the dates. It also has a “Stopwatch Start” and “Stopwatch Stop” function that might work for you.

Thanks for the insight @Aaron.Gleason.
