$currentDate is outputting strange values (ex. 2014.56.03)

The $currentDate variable we use in out meeting notes template is outputting strange month values: 2014.53.03, 2014.53.03 etc.

Note we have the date format defined as yyyy.mm.dd.

Thanks

Solved. My bad, mm refers to minutes, MM to months!

I tried:

  • dd.mm.yyyy: 04.11.2014 X
  • dd.MM.yyyy: 04.03.2014 OK!
  • yyyy.MM.dd: 2014.03.04 OK!

Thanks for the help!

Best,

Michael

What happens when you change the format?

How do I insert the $currentDate macro (variable?) into a new template? I tried creating it with the 'Template' dropdown but all I get is a form prompting the user to enter the date. It doesn't work the same way as on the 'Meeting Notes' blueprint template.

Sorry Violette, can't really help you. In the "Meeting Notes" you just write $currentDate and that brings up the date when the user creates new notes for a meeting.
