Retrieving current time from inside list Edited

Hi, I have a lookup issue and I am trying to display the time from now when the issue was last updated. I am attempting to use `now` however it is empty when doing it from inside a list. I have tried using _now also and I am unsure how I would go about doing this.

This is within Jira automation inside of an email. {{now}} on its own is empty however {{updated}} is showing the proper value. A small example of what I am doing is and is not showing anything for both of these values. I have confirmed there are actually items in the lookupIssues.



    {{ now }}

    {{ updated.diff(now).prettyPrint }}

Looks like some of our smart-values don't currently work correctly inside a lookupIssues block.
