Specification of username

We want to create a small family-wiki. Is there a way to list the name of the family member who last edited an Obsidian file in the file itself? For example, by reading the name of the user account and inserting it as a variable in the Markdown file? I haven’t found a corresponding function anywhere. Many thanks and best regards, Moritz

It might feel silly, but give everyone their own macro that types:

Last Edited by {Name} at {Current Time} on {Current Day}

This avoids formalizing usernames and giving permissions, but makes it one key-combination to accomplish what you want. Something like Templater can probably handle this, and if you decide to go this route but need help, I imagine a Templater expert can chime in to give you the syntax you need.
