i have email template for our lead follow up emails where we usually suggest a date 2 business days of sending the email. currently, it is a pain to manually update the date every time we send email. is there a way to insert it dynamically the way we can do the personalization attributes?
Since this thread still gets activity just wanted to note that datetimeformat() has been deprecated and replaced with format_datetime, format_date, and format_time. I just released a blog post that talks about dynamic dates in detail with many exmaples of these new functions if you want to learn more : https://www.alyssawilie.com/blog/add-dynamic-dates-to-automated-emails
If this answer solved your question, please mark it as the solution.
Hi, I'm using this to insert a dynamic date into an email and it works great! I was wondering if it's possible to have the date appear inline with preceeding text? I'd like to have a line that reads, "Sale ends ________" but currently it will put the dynamically generated date onto the next line which looks odd.
@amwilie This is really great, thanks for the solution. I'm curious to how this would work if I only wanted to show the next 4 business days? If its showing today (a Thursday), it would show Friday, Monday, and Tuesday. Is that possible through Hubl?
@spogue You can use a for loop and if statements to increase the plus_time if the weekday lands on a Saturday or Sunday. You'll probably want to put this in a custom module instead of directly in the email though.
