A Forum reader recently asked:
"I'm trying to use the workorder driver to implement a short delay in a workflow initiation. I want to set the dueDate to the current time +600 seconds to allow for this, but I can't seem to come up with a way to make this happen through Policy Builder. I know I can change the poll time of the
Workorder driver to run only every 5 minutes, or at a certain time, but this may result in inconsistent results and so is less desireable. I've run into other situations like this where I've wanted to do some simple math functions, so the answer may apply to more than just this scenario.
Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?"
And here's the response from Father Ramon ...
<token-time format="!CTIME" tz="UTC"/>
<token-xpath expression="$now + 600"/>
