How to Automate Date and Time Testing

Dates and timestamps are important in most test automation scenarios. For instance, when testing user sign-up flows, entering a birthday or social security number is often required. Or when validating expiration dates during web content testing, generating a date/time value exactly one week from today might be needed.

Working with dates and timestamps in LEAPWORK is very easy and flexible, using the Generate date/time, Offset date/time and Set date/time building blocks. Here's a simple example of how to get today's date and then add one year to it:
