Create a "Year" system token for use in common elements like footers

Every year, we are forced to update our snippets and then manually re-approve all emails and landing pages that use these snippets.  This updated, for the most part, is just to change the year.  It would be so much easier if Marketo provided a system token for us to use for the year that would auto-populate with the current year.

This is the workaround we use today.  But we also have 23 country workspaces.  So it's still a bit of pain to have to update each year.

For landing pages just use some simple javascript to update the date automatically.

Dan Stevens - we no longer use the date token in our emails because of the Outlook feature as Boris mentioned. Just wondering how you get around this? - do you have a different template for Sales Emails?

We're already doing this for landing pages today.  This is primarily for emails.

Us too then. We did start to do it for emails but came across the Outlook issue so reverted back

Can we get this going in the year 2020?  Makes sense for common needs such as email snippets...
