Hi everybody!

Google Docs automation works for me, but lacks some flexibility. For example, I generate meeting notes digest and would like to add a Date when document was generated in a Title of the document. There is a token TIME which allows inserting complete time, but I have no idea how to format it or truncate unneeded time part. Any ideas how to workaround this?

Regards,
Andrey

auto
Anyway, thanks for your suggestion.

This should work if you create a formula field in your Airtable table using the DATETIME_FORMAT function, and then insert that formula field into your document.

You can learn more about DATETIME_FORMAT here:
