$(HOPCalcDuration("Weekly HOP", Today(), Tomorrow()) / 3600)
The example above returns the total number of working hours for today. It ignores any hours outside of the hours of operation schedule. If the schedule called Weekly HOP sets the working hours as 8am to 5pm, this example returns 9.
This function returns the value in seconds. To return the value in minutes, divide the result by 60. To return the value in hours, divide the result by 3600.
