Dynamic Date Changes

Hi Everyone,

I’m fairly new into this world of coding and trying my hand at automating pulling a report from out website. However, the dates have to change dynamically to automate it as daily task when pulling the search query’s. I’ve pasted the code below for help on how to create and properly set up a dynamic date to select and pick today’s date before running a search.

I’m really not sure where to make the changes in the code so I used common sense and looked for keywords related to dates.

“Name”: “RMA_Export”,
“CreationDate”: “2021-7-1”,
“Commands”: [
“Command”: “open”,
“Target”: “Sign in - R1 for goTRG”,
“Value”: “”,
“Description”: “”

“Command”: “click”,
“Target”: “xpath=// [@id=“MainForm”]/main/section/div[9]/div[2]/div/div/div[2]/div/div/div[2]/div[2]/div/div[5]",
“Value”: “”,
“Targets”: [
“css=#MainForm > main > section.filter__container > div:nth-child(9) > div:nth-child(4) > div > div:nth-child(1) > div.react-datepicker-popper > div > div > div.react-datepicker__month-container > div.react-datepicker__month > div:nth-child(1) > div.react-datepicker__day.react-datepicker__day–001.react-datepicker__day–keyboard-selected.react-datepicker__day–today”

Entering a date into a date control can be very tricky, because date controls come in many different versions.

Can you add a screenshot of “your” date control? Can you maybe enter the date directly into a text box?

Hi @Plankton

Thank you for your response! I typically want the automation to run and pull a daily report for our ERP but on a daily cadence with the dates changing for every sequential date. Please let me know if you’re able to see the screenshot. All of the other steps occur fine it’s just having the dates change dynamically is the remaining detail I’d like to automate if possible.

Can you enter the text directly in these fields?
