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.
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.

Typing // to add a date on your Confluence pages works like a charm. There's another trick allowing you to save time.
Handy Date from our Handy Macros for Confluence adds the ability to change dates in the page view mode without editing the page. It's available for any hosting. This app also includes macros to create dropdowns, buttons, timestamps, and others so you can get much more than just a date picker with its help. See the gif below for details
