I’m new to Markdown and Obsidian! I’m trying to make the switch from notetaking thru Scrivener and have been watching videos and lurking on the forums here for a couple of weeks as I try to get the hang of everything.
I am working on a MAC OS and wanted to know if there was (especially when using the Daily Notes plugin) a way to include in a template the current date and also the time information was entered.
For example if I were to create a new note today would it be possible to list at the top, in the note:
and then have that time change based on when it was last edited?
Thanks so much and I apologise if this is the wrong board to post, I’m still doing my best to learn everything I can here.
I would love this feature as well, though in my case I’d love an option so that the date / time stamp doesn’t auto-update when the file is modified. A creation datetime rather than a last modified datetime.
Both please! The template I’ve been using for new notes puts both a creation date and a last modified date (same as the creation date) at the top of the note, and I try to make a habit of updating the modified date whenever I edit the note; having it automatically update would be great
I do this with a text expander.
And a different shortcut gives me an h6 followed by this in a zettelkasten format. Makes it very easy to create linkable blocks with a UID.
Of course if the modification is an edit rather than a new entry, it doesn’t work very well for your purpose.
This looks older, but does anyone have a method of automatically placing text for “Last updated: YYYY-MM-DD” in a note somewhere based on when it was last updated?
