This topic describes the syntax and usage of the today function in Zoho Creator .


Returns the current date. The today function is useful when you need to display the current date in your form or calculate a value based on the current date. It is also useful for calculating intervals. For example, if you know that someone was born in 1973, you might use the following formula to find that person's age as of this year's birthday: =YEAR(TODAY())-1983 This formula uses the TODAY function as an argument for the YEAR function to obtain the current year, and then subtracts 1963, returning the person's age., and have that value updated each time you open the form.



The today function syntax has no arguments.

Note: This function is supported only in free-flow scripting mode of Script Builder.
