You can automatically use PHP-formatted date and time information from the web server. To do so, you must first convert PHP-derived time and date information into a Telegraph field using the field directive:

<directive action="field" name="new-field-name" value="profile-field-name" />

  • Example:
    <directive action="field" name="time-and-date" value="[timestamp:date] - [timestamp:time]" />
