Timestamp (12d App)

A 12d Model app for displaying the current time and date in a particular timestamp format.  The timestamp can be captured in a chain and then used in automation and standardisation of processes for plots, file exports, reports, backups and more.

I will be writing a post shortly explaining exactly how to use this 12d app to add dates to file exports and backup existing files.  Stay tuned!
