Create a New Note Default with YAML

Hi there,

I am trying to create a new note with YAML information automatically pre-filled in.

Things I have tried

  • I’ve played around with the plugin Quickadd and Templates. However, the YAML information are not updated (e.g. 2022-05-02). Instead, it stays as {{YYYY-MM-DD}}

Any help on this to make the workflow smoother is greatly appreciated.

Best,

Daryl

It works for me in templates, I think you are just formatting it wrong, it should be like this:

{{date:YYYY-MM-DD}}

Quick Add has a unique format for variable names:
