Insert a date with text without going through the calendar widget?

I know that the // command opens that calendar date widget in edit mode.

My question is: Is it possible to type a date using this command without having to go all the way through a calendar to select a year or two in advance (for example)?

e.g. //20-08-2022 or something similar.


Many thanks in advance!

I copied a table with dates, and some of the dates converted automatically, other didn't. No its a mess for sorting. Also trying to work out a quick way to translate those dates to date widget. Additionally, why did some automatically convert and others not...couldn't fiund a pattern.

I don't think Confluence has that feature the calendar has only the actual year.

I know which feature you are talking about but there isn't at the moment one in Confluence.
