looking for "current date" macro

Is there a macro (or some other way) to display the current date on a confluence page?  My purpose is to display a field that shows the current age of something, given a birth date.  For example, Android 7.0 was released on 8/22/2016.  If I view the page today, it should say: 4 years 11 months 4 days.  And then tomorrow when someone views the page, it should say: 4 years 11 months 5 days.

@Philip Hadley Welcome to the Atlassian Community

Since you are on server you could create your own macro and add it to the page or to a template.  You can see all the different date types that can be used here:

I created one that shows the last date updated

<br />
<hr />
Last Modified: $action.dateFormatter.formatDateTime($content.lastModificationDate)

and it appears as Last Modified: Aug 05, 2021 10:22


There is a synthaxe (in user macro confluence) that will allow me to add 6 months to the result obtained ?

Thank you

Hi @Sébastien GAYOU ,

If it happens so that you have our Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app installed for your instance, please note that the Table Transformer is capable to show the "today" date and add/substract intervals. Or vise versa: count the interval between two dates. 

If you are not familiar with the app, please book a live demo (you may provide us with a link to this question to show this use case).

good morning,

I don't want to add time to the current date (which can be done quite easily in Javascript), but to the modification date of my page.
This will allow me to see when to make a revision.
I'd like to automate the information: I have a modification date and 6 months later I revise the page.
in javascript, the "document.lastModified" command doesn't work because it takes the page's refresh date.

On my side, I couldn't justify buying an application for this action because there are workarounds with manual actions using tasks. but this is restrictive
