All Opmantek applications that handle time-series data use a common mechanism for parsing start and end times, which supports a large number of different formats listed below.

Starting with opEvents 2.0.4, Time zone specifications are also supported.

Default Format

The default format is the specific "DD-MON-YYYY HH:MM:SS", which you will have seen already in the Quick Search field. The default timezone is the server's local timezone (or the configured timezone as per omkd_display_timezone - available in opEvents releases 2.0.4 and newer).
