# Add ISO8601 for date command

It would be nice to be able to do `\date(ISO8601)` or something to get `2020-07-31` for example. As a programmer, I often work with this standardized date format, and thus use it in my notes as well.

This is now possible in Agenda v11: Creating and Using Templates

That’s why I posted this. I didn’t see this as a built in option. I’m asking to have it added as it’s a pretty standard one.

Don’t think it makes much sense, typing that isn’t exactly something most people would “try” as it’s a bit of an esoteric and random iso number. Instead just type `\date(format:YYYY-MM-dd)` once and after that `\date` should always give you your iso date.
