Amending a PixelPrinter template

Hello there,

I posted this in the app section but was hoping to resolve ASAP...

I just wondered if anyone knew if there's a variable that can be used on the invoice to show the actual date of order on a PixelPrinter template?

I've only just realised that when we print out invoices we're showing the date of the day we're printing, which can be a few days later that when the order arrived.

The code in our template is:

<p style="float: right">
 {{ "now" | date: "%d/%m/%y" }}

Not a massive problem, but when a customer calls with an query, it's easier to track if we can also look for the ACTUAL order date on our printed invoices.

Would appreciate any tips!

Hi Simon,

That's an excellent question and I believe that the answer is un-documented. We will remediate this.

To show the date of the order use this:

{{ created_at | date: "%d/%m/%y" }}

Let me know if that works as intended in PixelPrinter.
