As another option to formulas for condition values in this post, I could use also make use of the following:

{{$Dates.CurrentYear}}

Pat~

I can see how that'd be super helpful. Vote this up if you want to see it too so our devs know how important this would be to the community.

Thanks!

Yes!

And allow merge syntax to access the properties of skuid.time.

Yep, 7 votes is pretty high for ideas on this community. You'll make a lot of people happy with (relatively) minimal work to add {{$Time}} merge syntax.

Skuid,

This would be very helpful!

For anyone interested in a workaround, you can setup a UI Only model and add a Formula field to get the date, time, current year; etc. and use this on your page.

Thanks,

Bill
