Add a date to a symbol note

Question:  

Is there a way to have the date be part of the Note?  

Answer:

Certain strings, preceded by an ampersand “&”, will be filled with actual numbers, dates or text when displayed.

Use substitutable text strings as part of a symbol's text or note to show column text, duration, used duration, remaining duration, amount ahead/behind schedule, baseline duration, percent complete and the value of a symbol ValueSet.

For example, if "&col1" is entered in the symbol text slot, that command is replaced by the text in column 1 for that task row. If  "&vs1" is entered in the symbol text slot, that command is replaced by the ValueSet 1 value for that symbol. Here are other available substitutable symbol text/note fields:
