This function will be deprecated in a future release, so use it with caution.

However, it is still supported for existing expressions, so it has not been removed from the application. Editing an expression using this function can cause an error message to appear.

Instead of this function, use ToLocal.

Converts a DateTime value from UTC time to the local time of the logged-in user. If you execute this function without the optional time parameter, returns the current local time associated with the current session.

Parameter Description


(Optional) A UTC time to convert to local time. The default is the current time.

Return Value

DateTime value.

If the application has to display the return value, it implicitly converts it to text, thereby allowing the display format to change depending on your culture code. See Available Languages and Cultures for a list of the culture codes used by Neurons for ITSM.



The above example returns the current local time.


$(ToClientTime(HOPCalcTargetDate("Weekly HOP", CurrentDateTime(), ((12 * 60) * 60))))

If $(HOPCalcTargetDate("Weekly HOP", CurrentDateTime(), ((12 * 60) * 60))) returns 10/15/2014 8:22:03 PM and your time zone is UTC-7, this returns 10/15/2014 1:22:03 PM.
