Thank you very much Alan for your reply.

Sorry for asking this basic question, but how exactly do I use this module? I.e. how looks a XLAT string / placeholder that gives me the current date in a certain format?

For most modules there are plenty of examples, but I couldn't find anything about date:... expansion.

Best regards + sorry again for asking stupid questions
