Smart values question

hey all
hope everyone are doing well
smart values question:
i have a value that is originated form a field of dropdown list for example 06:00 (it represents time - yet we did it in a drop down list of values and not in datetime picker)
is there any way to convert it to time in smart values?
(i managed to convert it to number - but eventually i want it based on time zone)
thank you

@Naama Betzalel in Jira you can't have an only time field. Has to be date/time picker. So my two cents is that you have to work with two fields in order to get the time.E.g.

You have a date field called "Date". And you have the dropdown list of time called "Dropdown Time". I think that it could worth a shot of concatenating the two fields to a new variable so as to get a results of "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm a" (where a = pm/am). Then you will try to format that variable.

There could be a chance of having to copy the new variable to a date field prior of getting the time. 

Hi @Alex Koxaras
