## How to use the time from now calculator

To use the Time From Now Calculator, simply follow these steps:

**Input the Time Duration**: Enter the number of*hours*,*minutes*, and*seconds*into the proper fields under the**Hours**,**Minutes**, and**Seconds**labels.**Enter Longer Durations**: For longer durations, input the number of days, weeks, months, and years in the fields labeled**Days**,**Weeks**,**Months**, and**Years**. By default, I zeroed these out so you can do math with time.**Calculate**: Click the**Calculate Time**button to compute the future date and time.**View Results**: The results will be displayed in the**Time**,**Date**, and**Day of the Week**fields under the Outputs section.

Additionally, the **Summary** field provides a comprehensive recap of your input and the corresponding future date and time. It makes it straightforward to pick up on the context of the calculated time (or, if you prefer, *to copy and paste*!).

## Understanding the output of the future date calculation

The output of the time from now calculator is reasonably straightforward:

**Time**: Shows the exact future time, formatted in a 12-hour clock with AM/PM.**Date**: Displays the full future date, including the month, day, and year.**Day of the Week**: Indicates the day of the week for the calculated future date.

Additionally, the **Summary** field provides a comprehensive recap of your input and the corresponding future date and time. I couldn't program the tool to tell you what will be happening then, but this was a good compromise.

Also, see our time ago calculator to do a similar calculation for the past.
