There are several steps to this.
Create a new DateTime variable to represent 24 hours ago using something like this: addHours([%CurrentDateTime%], -24)
Pass this value to “Datetime to Long” in the Community Commons library in the App Store. This returns the milliseconds since epoch for a datetime.
As you need seconds, you need to create another variable to divide this by 1000 to get the number of seconds. As you need this as an integer/long, run it through floor() something like this: floor($vMilliseconds div 1000)
