I know this is incredibly simple, so simple that even a caveman could do it (with all due respect to cavemen everywhere!) but for the life of me, I can’t figure this out.
I found a Shortcut I want to use with Apple Notes. It’s very simple, create a new note with the current date in my Journal folder.
The problem is that as I have tested this several all times the date format right, the note is created and the date format is correct. BUT, every time I run the Shortcut today to test it, it adds a month to the date format. As you can see I’m up to the “17th” month.
What in the world am I doing wrong?
The date format needs to be yyyy-M-d.
Checking Apple’s documentation, you can see the the lowercase
m is for minutes, while the uppercase
M is for month. Therefore, you need to use the uppercase
@jec0047 is correct. And the reason your “month” keeps increasing is that “m” is minutes. See this page for all the formatting codes.
I’ve updated my profile pic.
Seriously, sorry to have asked such a dumb question but I appreciate the help!
Why do you have a pic of my Ancestor…?!
… and of the rest of us! My guess is that no one will offer me a coding internship.
I grew up, in the vicinity of where this guy lived, so…
@Bmosbacker don’t think this guy gave anything to know what month it is… Sun up / Sun down was all that mattered…
