Insert current date in a Confluence template (onDemand)

I am trying to add the current date to a template similar to Meeting Notes. Running OnDemand so adding a user macro is not an option as described here:

The Meeting Notes template uses  and works great but only works on that specific blueprint. 

Is there any plugin or way of automatically inserting the current date with the Confluence Cloud version?

I used the ‘CYO Create-Your-Own Custom Macro’ Macro to display the current date using this code:

<script type="text/javascript">
    var d = new Date();
    var curDate = d.getDate();
    var curMonth = d.getMonth() + 1; //Months are zero based
    var curYear = d.getFullYear();
    var dateCode = ((curMonth<=9 ? '0' + curMonth : curMonth) + "" + (curDate<=9 ? '0' + curDate : curDate) + "" + curYear)


This doesn't work for me :(

After pasting this in left window it is treated literally as text and the javascript code is displayed in one line on the page.

Does anyone know why? And where are docs which explains what is the difference between left and right window?
