Date field

I've only found very old posts on this topic, so I apologize if it's been answered.

 

Is there anyway to have the current date pulled into an email (through the advanced editor).  I'm setting up emails that go out daily and I need them to say "Your tip for TODAY'S DATE"

 

Thank you!

Re: Date field

Hi @imru

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community with your question! I can understand the want to have an option for the current date to be pulled into an email, unfortunately this is not a feature we currently provide. However I would be more than happy to pass along your feedback for this feature. We're always collecting feedback to improve your experience using our system.

Re: Date field

I've noticed this is the answer people have been getting since 2013...is this something actually on your enhancement roadmap at this time?

Re: Date field

Hi @imru. Being able to insert that type of information into the subject line is still something we are collecting feedback on at this time. For now, the subject line would have to be manually updated to insert the date. We have submitted your feedback over to the appropriate department.

Re: Date field

Thanks Caitlin, while I don't think this will change your answer, I'm actually looking to insert the date into the body of the email and not the subject.

Re: Date field

Hi @imru. I just checked with our upper level of support and at this time, it is not possible to automatically have a date be entered into the email and the date would have to manually updated when the email was created or copied. This type of function you are looking for requires Javascript which our email product does not support. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
