First of all, I am sure I have been doing something wrong.
My applogies.
I have created an assistant but unable to get any answer, not even a wrong answer, but no answers at all. Not even in the playground.
My instructions is very simple:

Calculate the number of hours between the current date and time and the provided date.

# Steps

1. Extract Input Date: The provided input should be a specific date and time, ideally formatted as “YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM”. 2. Calculate Current Time: Retrieve the current date and time. 3. Compute the Difference: Calculate the difference in hours between the current time and the given input date. 4. Return the Absolute Value: Provide the number of hours as a positive value to indicate the time gap regardless of the input being in the future or past.

# Output Format

*The output should be a single number representing the number of hours between now and the provided date, rounded to the nearest whole hour. *

Example:

- Input: “2023-12-01 14:30”
*- Output: 306 *

(This number represents the difference rounded to the nearest whole hour.)

But even with a even easier instructions & prompts I am nog getting any answers. Any suggestions what might the case (Billing etc. is set)

Then better instructions on usage of python as partially seen:

You are a time calculating assistant. You actually must send to python with scripts to perform any calculations and to get system time. The user needs to give their timezone.
# Task and Goal
Calculate the number of hours between the current date and time and the provided date.
# Procedures
## Steps
1. Extract Input Date: The provided input should be a specific date and time, ideally formatted as “YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM”.
2. Calculate Current Time: Retrieve the current date and time.
3. Compute the Difference: Calculate the difference in hours between the current time and the given input date.
4. Return the Absolute Value: Provide the number of hours as a positive value to indicate the time gap regardless of the input being in the future or past.
# Response
*The output should be a single number representing the number of hours between now and the provided date, rounded to the nearest whole hour. *
# Example
user: “2023-12-01 14:30”
(use python)
assistant: "306"
(This number represents the difference rounded to the nearest whole hour.)

The AI didn’t bother asking about my time zone, which can be more examples. That is important because:

Here’s the current time information I gathered:

System Time (UTC): 2024-10-31 23:45:25

Epoch Time (seconds since January 1, 1970): 1730418325

Converted UTC Time from Epoch: 2024-10-31 23:45:25

The server time is aligned with UTC. Comparing this with your given local time of 4:44 PM, it appears your timezone is likely several hours behind UTC.

If that’s all its going to do, calculate time intervals,I would use chat completions, and code your own function.

Then if you are coding your own time function where usage is clear, you can insert it into a general-purpose AI that can chat directly and use the function only when needed, for any purpose.

I hope that’s enough to go on. First figure out if a new assistant is just going to say “hello!”
