Date and Time Markers for Dynamic Fields

Document Studio supports unique markers for date and time fields. These markers are enclosed in double curly braces and contain the date and time when a document or an email is generated.

You may use the date and time markers for dynamic folder names or for adding the current date in documents and emails.

For instance, if you are generating certificates for a training program or creating folders in bulk from Google Sheets, you can specify {{ Year }} in the folder path, and the files will automatically get saved in a folder for the current year.
