If the event time (_time) is greater than the current time (now) rounded to the nearest day (relative_time(now, "-0d@d")) then do something.

See relative_time and now() documentation

If helps, "-0d@d" and "@d" are equivalent. See the time modifiers page for more information.

Thanks,
J

_time represents the time the event occurred.
relative_time() : takes an time (epoch), as the first argument and a relative time difference, as the second argument and returns the epochtime value of difference from time. In you example, it will return "-0d@d" which is same as start of day = TODAY() at 12:00:00.
