Discord Timestamp Syntax

Discord Timestamps

Discord timestamps can be useful for specifying a date/time across multiple users time zones. They work with the Unix Timestamp format and can be posted by regular users as well as bots and applications.

The Epoch Unix Time Stamp Converter is a good way to quickly generate a timestamp. For the examples below I will be using the Time Stamp of 1543392060, which represents November 28th, 2018 at 09:01:00 hours for my local time zone (GMT+0100 Central European Standard Time).

Formatting

Style Input Output (12-hour clock) Output (24-hour clock)
Default <t:1543392060> November 28, 2018 9:01 AM 28 November 2018 09:01
Short Time <t:1543392060:t> 9:01 AM 09:01
Long Time <t:1543392060:T> 9:01:00 AM 09:01:00
Short Date <t:1543392060:d> 11/28/2018 28/11/2018
Long Date <t:1543392060:D> November 28, 2018 28 November 2018
Short Date/Time <t:1543392060:f> November 28, 2018 9:01 AM 28 November 2018 09:01
Long Date/Time <t:1543392060:F> Wednesday, November 28, 2018 9:01 AM Wednesday, 28 November 2018 09:01
Relative Time <t:1543392060:R> 3 years ago 3 years ago

Whether your output is 12-hour or 24-hour depends on your Discord language setting. For example, if you have your Discord language set to English, US 🇺🇸, you will get a 12-hour output. If your Discord language is set to English, UK 🇬🇧, you will get a 24-hour output.

READ BEFORE COMMENTING

I realize this has become the first search result on google when you search "Discord Timestamps" so I understand all kinds of users coming here with questions.

However, I am just a newbie dev and not affiliated with Discord in any way. I suggest asking your question in the Official Discord Developer Server if you're a developer or looking over the Discord documentation.

If you're a regular Discord user looking to generate a timestamp, sesh.fyi has a purpose-built tool for that which is probably exactly what you're looking for.

How to get the time from a timestamp though? Is there a formula?

@Henonicks you can copy the content of message with right click or with bot

Diablo 4 early access <t:1685660400:R>!!!
Diablo 4 early access in 4 days!!!
It won't let me use the tag in here since it isn't discord, but that is what it would look like if it were 5/28/2023 (today) and Diablo 4 early access was in 4 days which would be the "1685660400" part. and the tag <t: EPOCHTIMEHERE :R> where t= time and R= relative. You would get your epoch time in your local time and not GMT so that you don't have to convert it.
