Typing 'Now' into a date/time field as a shortcut for inputting the current time


It would be awesome if you could type ‘Now’ or ‘Today’ into a date field as a shortcut for getting the current date/time.

It’s a small thing, but there’s always a few seconds pause to double check what the current date is when typing that can interrupt data input flow.

(I know you can click the Today button when the date picker pops up, but this would be great for people who get by predominantly on the keyboard)


When a date field is selected in grid view or in the expanded records, pressing Cmd+; (Ctrl+; on Windows) will fill it with the current date/time.

I just realized that isn’t documented in our keyboard shortcuts so we’ll update it soon!
