Solink tags video to transactions based on a unique place and time pairing. A unique place is identified by the combination of store (a physical location registered with the Solink service) and register, table number or terminal (the source of the transactional information within the store). Time is absolute and must adhere to the following convention:

The preferred datetime format is the Epoch (Unix) time in milliseconds e.g. 1042779600000

The alternative datetime formats are:

  • ISO-8601 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) e.g. 2003-01-17T05:00:00.000Z
  • ISO-8601 Local Time with offset to UTC e.g. 2003-01-17T00:00:00.000-05:00
