During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the example images in the Old UI vs. New UI section and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

ISO duration designators

ISO duration designators

ISO durations use one-letter designators and a simple format to indicate standardized time intervals. To enter a duration:

  1. Enter P (period) if you want to use days, weeks, months, or years as your unit of time, and PT (period, time) if you want to use seconds, minutes, or hours.
  2. Enter the number of units that you want to use.
  3. Enter the desired time unit designators:
    • D (days), W (weeks), M (months), Y (years) if you used P.
    • S (seconds), M (minutes), H (hours) if you used PT.
