Hey there…look for assistance with formula that uses the TODAY() function with a set time. I.e. I want the field to have the current date but with a set time so that it would show for example the current date that updates each day but always has 12:00 PM.
Thanks in advance for help

Someone might have a simpler & easier formula for this, but I just quickly whipped this together and it seems to work. You’ll want to choose your own timezone from the list of supported time zones.
DATETIME_PARSE( DATETIME_FORMAT(SET_TIMEZONE(TODAY(),'America/Los_Angeles'),'MM-DD-YYYY') & " 12:00 PM", 'MM-DD-YYYY h:m A')

That works quite well. The only thing that I can add is that with a simple format like that, you can actually leave out the formatting string in the
DATETIME_PARSE() function and it still parses correctly:
DATETIME_PARSE( DATETIME_FORMAT(SET_TIMEZONE(TODAY(),'America/Los_Angeles'),'MM-DD-YYYY') & " 12:00 PM")
I find that specific formatting strings are really only needed when the source string format is non-standard; e.g. “Jan252022”.

Thanks, @Justin_Barrett! That’s great to know, and it’s a great simplification! :slightly_smiling_face:
