1. This requires that the date format in use is m/d/yyyy.

2. This seems to be a duplicate of:

As I mentioned there, you only need to do:

Round ( timestamp / 900 ; 0 ) * 900

I'm sorry it's realy duplicate
I was not sure it's commited

Thanks for your comment Mr. VM
I think you meant:
GetAsTime ( Round ( Get ( CurrentTime ) / 900 ; 0 ) * 900 )

because Timestamp function has 2 parameters date and time
Timestamp ( date ; time )
