Shortcut Information

This shortcuts shows you a series of date or time options in their final format as you pick, then copies the result to the clipboard.

Use this as a way to quickly copy a pre-formatted date or time without having to remember what style the Short or Medium or Long or other Date formats will result in.

You can also use the example strings in the menus as a reference for building other date or time-related shortcuts – getting things like the day of week is possible with custom formatting.
