    Default Adding a timestamp to emails.

    Hello - firstly Thanks for a great product, just what I was looking for!

    Can someone tell me if it's possible to add a timestamp to an email? I'm using the HTML template option.
    I see the script uses $lNow but I can't work out how to use it!

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi,

    The way to do this is to create a "derived" field that contains the date/time stamp.

    This HOW-TO guide provides a full description and samples: http://www.tectite.com/fmhowto/derived.php

    Any field you derive will be included in the email, by default.

    Thanks Russell - all successfully implemented.

    You have a very impressive response time!!!

    The only constructive crititism I have is related to the navigation of your website. I had spent quite a while digging around and searching your site for the answer to my query - it was there all along but I couldn't find it.

    It may just be me but I don't find it totally intuitive moving between your website pages and through the Guides in your forum and then back to the comments in the script.

    Perhaps it would help if you repeated the documentation contained in the script in your website (expanding it at the same time) this would then allow you to link from the documentation to your forum guides.

    Just a thought - it might only be me being thick :) I feel a bit rude typing this after you making such a useful product and being so helpful...

    Anyway Thanks again.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The HOW-TO guides are gradually going straight into the website and out of the forums (with a redirection link in the forums).

    The search facility on the website should work well for finding info there.

    Perhaps it would help if you repeated the documentation contained in the script in your website (expanding it at the same time) this would then allow you to link from the documentation to your forum guides.
    That's a really valuable suggestion. We've been considering doing that for some time, and it's something we will probably implement shortly.
