Skeddly - MonthOfYear macro as a two digit number

jignesh.jasmat@fronde.com Aug 04, 2016 10:11PM EDT

Hi Team,

We are using Skeddly to try and automate some tasks on the first day of every month. Unfortunately there's not a macro for first day of the month as a number, like there is day of month as a short or long form.

Would you be able to create a macro for this? Or is there a workaround we could use to get the current month as a two digit number number (i.e. 01 or 11)?

Thanks

Hello,

For day of the month, we currently have the following macros:

  • $(DAYOFMONTH) – As a 1 or 2 digit number (1 or 11)

For month of the year, we currently have the following macros:

  • $(MONTHOFYEAR) – Name of month, long form (January or April)
  • $(MOY) – Name of month, short form (Jan or Apr)

As I understand it, you would like to have two new macros added:

  • Month of year as a 2 digit number (01 or 11)
  • Day of month as a 2 digit number (01 or 11)

Correct?

Hi Team,

Just to be clear - The existing Day of Month macro outputs as 1 digit? Or two?

If it only does one digit then we'll need that set up as well. But yes, we definately the month of year macro as a 2 digit number.

So, we need:

* Day of Month, two digit number. This may already be covered by the Day of month macro.
* Month of Year macro as a two digit number. I don't believe this is covered.

Cheers for the quick response

The existing macro is only 1 digit.

We’ll get these new macros added for you right away.

We have 3 new macros now available:

  • $(MONTHOFYEARNUM) – Month of the year, as a number
  • $(MONTHOFYEARNUM2) – Month of the year, as a 2-digit number
