I'd like to show 'todays date' on a page, how do I do this (without buying plugins)


I'm missing some very basic features in confluence cloud. 
I'd like to add todays date to a page (so I have a date listed when I export a KPI report to pdf).  

I read a bit in the forum, but this seems to be only possible, if 
a) I buy some plugin, which I refuse to do for such basic functions. 

b) Become a developer myself and create my own plugin. 

I think in general Confluence cloud misses some very basic functions to create your own macro's and automation functions in a straightforward way... 

Is there any straightforward way I can add 'todays date' to my confluence page? (not to a template, but a published page).

Hi @Danny Derks 

Short answer is no. But you could do it manually though. It's about 4 clicks. I don't think that this "basic" feature you are asking would add additional value in Confluence. In my case and job it would be pretty useless. :/

But you could always add this feature as a suggestion, vote it, watch it and ask from other users to do the same.
