Templating the Timestamp field

The Timestamp field allows content writers to add a date and time.

Get & output the timestamp value

Here's how to get the value of a Timestamp field and output it in a simple format.

Copy
<span class="event-date">
    ${document.getTimestamp("event.date").getValue()}
</span>
// Outputs in the following format: 2016-01-23T13:30:00.000+00:00

Other date & time formats

You can control the format of the Timestamp value by using asText() method and passing in the formatting options as shown below.

Copy
<span class="event-date">
    ${document.getTimestamp("event.date").asText("hh:mm a - EE MMM dd")}
</span>
// Outputs in the following format: 01:30 PM - Sat Jan 23
