"$currentDate" & "$currentUser"

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Create a Template

Why are variables "currentDate" and "currentUser" working only in the template "Meeting notes"? When I create my own templates it doesn't work!

Hi Anastasia, those variables are part of the meeting notes blueprint, and are unfortunately not available in an ordinary template.   You can comment or watch the suggestion here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-30567

You can add your own variables to a template, but they do not automatically populate with information from Confluence, but instead provide a popup for the user creating the page to fill in.
