I often write short text documents on my iPhone, and want to insert a date stamp in the format YYYY-MM-DD. Is there a utility or other means by which I can quickly insert a date stamp instead of typing it manually each time?
Sadly, the Shortcuts app is one item short of doing this pretty much natively.
It has a text function that pastes in the value of the current date, but there isn’t ISO formatting option.
I tried a Pythonista script that works very well to get the values you need, just am missing some glue to turn it into a shortcut.
import datetime iso = datetime.date.today().isoformat() print(iso)
Siri can even trigger this shortcut (or share sheet) for you, once I figure out how to get the two connected.
