[rt-users] Time Left

As Time Left is in minutes, all I need to figure out is how to set it initially.
 I would assume that I need to grab the due date and Diff it with the current
time.  However, the scrip I've cobbled together clearly isn't the way to do it
as it doesn't work ;)

Condition: On Create
Action: User Defined
Template: Global template: Blank

Custom action preparation code:
my $date = new RT::Date($self->CurrentUser);
$date->Set(Format => 'unix', Value => time);
my $dueIn = DiffAsString($date);


Maybe my logic is flawed.  Or it could be that I've never actually written a
scrip before so I'm likely screwing it all up.  Either way, any help will be

Keep up with me and what I'm up to: http://theillien.blogspot.com
