Time format modifiers used in Level2 report builder

When you place cells with time values in the report you need to specify format string for them. Then the special 'token' charachters will be looked for to determine how to display the time.

E.g. in h:m:s string for duration h, m and s charachters will be replaced with the duration “weights” in hours, minute and seconds respectively, separated with the ':'. Please refer to the following tables for time and duration format specifiers.

Please refer to the below tables for token characters:

LLLL Thursday, September 4 1986 8:30 PM Day of week, month name, day of month, year, time
LT 08:30 PM Time (without seconds)
LTS 08:30:00 PM Time (with seconds)

Time duration formatting

The template string is parsed for moment token characters, which are replaced with the duration's value for each unit type. The moment tokens are:

years:   Y or y
months:  M
weeks:   W or w
days:    D or d
hours:   H or h
minutes: m
seconds: s
ms:      S

Escape token characters within the template string using square brackets.


 h [hrs], m [min] 

format string will result in such output: “2 hrs, 3 mins”.
