General: add functionality to convert datetime object to timestamp

See original GitHub issue


we currently can convert a string in “MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM:SS” format. Want to add functionality of taking a datetime object and converting to a timestamp


date_time = datetime.datetime.fromisoformat("2020-10-15 12:00:00")
new_date_time_obj = date_time.replace(tzinfo=timezone.utc)
return int(new_date_time_obj.timestamp())
