Is there a 'Token' for adding 'today's date' to a letter template to avoid having to add the date manually?

  • This seems similar to civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/8783/…. For your purposes the extension it suggests is probably the easiest: github.com/eileenmcnaughton/nz.co.fuzion.civitoken

  • I voted to close it as duplicate, since there already is the answer at the other link. So I figured it would be a bit inconsistent to then give a duplicate answer.

  • Jack - welcome to Stack exchange. Before posting a question you should always search through existing questions to see if it has already been asked (and hopefully answered) before, as I believe is the case for your question

There is no token available to add current date. You can create a custom token using following two hooks.

Please review documentation on how to create custom tokens described there.
