What is the shortcut to add calendar-style dates?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Questions and Answers

I stumbled across a shortcut/macro that allowed me to add dates in a quite a neat calendar-style date but I can't for the life of me remember what I typed to create it. Can anyone help me?

Please see screenshot below for an example of what it looks like. You can click the date and a calendar pops up.

Try the  //

This is the solution at the meeting notes Blueprint smile


By looking at //, I thought something has been truncated after this. Was not expecting that // shows up date picker.

Thanks for the answer.

It's magic :) :) If I am hurry, I always try to use every key two times, sometimes it helps :) :) 

I am trying to provide a date field with date picker as per above. I am able to insert the variable field by typing the //, highlighting, then clicking insert template items button and choosing new variable from drop down, however no calendar pops up in either Edit or Preview mode in the template. What am I missing?
