Outlook template with date

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,


I'm trying to set up an Outlook template that includes an automatic date (prior date from today) within the text. 


For example instead of saying 

''Please find attached the report from last Saturday''


It would calculate automatically what was the last saturday from today's date

''Please find attached the report from Saturday [x]''


I found that in your template you can

1. Insert/ Date and time/ Update automatically

2. Right click on your date/ Toggle Field Codes

That way it displays the {DATE} field. It gives you the option to change the formatting beyond the limited choices in the dialog box. But I can't figure the formula from there...



Any Idea how ? and what would be the formula ?

Any Alternative ?
