Did you mean: 

I am currently trying to get by without a dedicated TIME field with no date attached. I am currently trying to convert a text field into a timefield with the following code:

DATETIME_FORMAT(DATETIME_PARSE({Start Time}, ‘hh:mm’), ‘hh:mm a’)

The focumula is working fine, however when I write in a time, such as 3pm, it still parses it in as 3am. I note that if I put in 1500, it correctly parses the time to 3pm.

I have worked in systems where you could put in variations of (3pm, 3p, 300pm, etc) and it would always know that meant PM. Is there a way to make airtable do this, and of course the converse with AM, so that I do not have to use military time?
