Current year in epoch time

Robi_MeRobi_Me Member Posts: 32 Maven
I am using the below in Generate Attributes:

(date_get(date_now(),DATE_UNIT_YEAR)-1970)*31556926

Any idea why I am 9 hours and 44 minutes off from the start of the year?

    Hi,

    can you try Date To Numerical with time unit second and second relative to epoch?
