I'm trying to put in a date into a wiki page. On auto-generated Retrospective pages, there is an excellent date picker. I'd like this on other pages, but I can't figure out how to include it. It's not a macro, and doesn't exist anywhere within the documentation. The only way I've been able to include the same functionality has been to literally copy and paste the date picker to the new page.
See screenshot. Top is what I want. The rest is how hard I'm trying.
The documentation is for // as in you're typing and inline enter // and get the date picker.
This is not what Felix is referring to. In the retrospective (and other) templates there's a lozenge that inserts the current date when you create the document.
Where is that functionality documented? I've been futzing with it off and on with poor results.
Thank you very much for pointing this out! I scoured the keyboard shortcut help pages in both Confluence 6.4 and Confluence Cloud and I did not see the date picker: // shortcut.
Then I found that this has been reported before: Add documentation for date picker keyboard shortcut

Does anyone know how to format this // date picker? It doesn't seem to follow the settings under general formatting settings as I would have assumed. As described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/configuring-time-and-date-formats-150144.html
Is it possible to enter a specific date using the // format?
I would like to enter // 2008-09-17, but the date picker only seems to allow dates to be entered through the GUI date picker and enter past dates is very cumbersome through this process (can you imagine how many clicks i have to use to enter this date via the date picker without being able to enter it directly?
How can this be a 'feature' if it is not very usable?
How can this be a feature if it has a 'bug' that was just NOW (well 3 weeks ago) entered, and will unlikely be fixed any time soon.
