Under Consideration
Idea is being considered for release, but development hasn't started. We post updates every three releases.

Custom Time Field

Globalization & Custom Schema

It would be nice to have the ability to create custom Time Fields. Currently, we have the ability to create Time/Date fields, or just Date fields, but not Time fields. A time field would be handy for: - special event management - time tracking - project management

    Thank you Douglas- your CSM has been in touch and I'm working to see what the latest status of this Idea is. My apologies for there being such a long time between updates as well-  we will do better going forward. I'll circle back as soon as we have more info- thank you for your patience. 

    Previous Update:
    As with a lot of feature requests, this one is trickier than it might initialy seem.  The hard part about making time availabile on a custom object is that custom objects don't nativley have a locale or time zone which is really important for doing calculations and determining display.  We know our users want this and it is on the list of field types we'd like to display someday but we have some more design and thinking work to do before this gets targeted to a release.
