- define a template like so:
- make a new note with a
mydateproperty and in the properties UI, define
mydate’s property type as
dateto establish its default property type
- make another new note and apply the above template so that
mydateis automatically set to today’s date (in this example, let’s suppose this is 2023-09-07)
mydateto a different date, say 2023-05-01
- when the link icon for
mydateis clicked, it should open the daily note for the currently stored value (e.g. 2023-05-01) but in fact it still opens the original value defined from the template (e.g. 2023-09-07)
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? Y
mydate is updated to a new value, the link icon in the Properties UI should also update so that when clicked, it opens the daily note for the current value of
Clicking the link icon opens up the note for the value of
mydate that was initially defined by the template, even after this property is updated to a new value.
If I click back to the original note with
mydate and try clicking the date link icon again (thinking maybe it just didn’t update right away), then something very strange happens. It still opens the originally defined daily note (e.g. 2023-09-07), but now the the file path in the navigation bar incorrectly lists the updated daily note (e.g. “Calendar / 2023-05-01”). So the file listed in the navigation bar (e.g. “Calendar / 2023-05-01”) does not match the note which is actually displayed (e.g. 2023-09-07).
This behavior persists even after closing and re-opening Obsidian and trying to click the
mydate link again.

The debug info pasted above says 2 snippets are enabled, but I double checked to make sure all snippets are turned off (see attached image) as well as all community plugins turned off and using the default theme.
EDIT: I did some further testing and it seems that the bug is not specific to the date property initially being auto-filled by a template. Even if I just create a new note and manually define an initial value for
mydate and then update this value, the behavior detailed above still occurs.
