We can use a combination of the content tag and Liquid filters to add the current date to an email campaign. 

In this example, the "2015" inside the content tags is used as a placeholder when you test the template outside of Taxi. 

Once the code goes through Taxi, it is replaced with the current year.

  • %a - The abbreviated weekday name (Sun)
