how to change the units of time the current model

Good afternoon, how can you change the time units in my model, what happens, I have the model in minutes but I want to set it to seconds, but if I make another model, I would lose the configuration of the current model because I do not master the flow process well, so I wanted to know how is it possible to do that

You can't change model units after you create the model. However, you can specify the time units on most fields where you specify durations/speeds/etc. For example, clicking the blue unit text next to these fields lets you change the units of that field:

You can also use the time unit commands like seconds() to convert from some time unit into model units. For example, seconds(30) would return 0.5 in a model built in minutes.
