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

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.
