Creating a Timestamp Row for Logging Daily or Timed Activity

 

Let’s say you wanted to record daily activity in a JMP data table and would like to populate the date rows automatically

 

or need a “time stamp" which represents the time when the new data has been entered as new row.

 

In a Column, create the amount of rows as your planning for your observations. 

 

Right-click Add Rows - Enter 30.

 

Then create 2 rows of dates, today and tomorrow for example.

 

Highlight both of those dates, Right-click then Continue Sequence to end of Table.

 

The second way we will use the Today argument in the formula editor and format the column as a date and time.

 

I created a column, right-clicked for Formula ,  added the Today argument and selected OK.

 

I’ll manually enter a value and there is my date. However I don’t care for it;’s format.

 

Under Column Info I’ll format as Time with my date structure preference.

 

Now whenever I enter data a nice clean timestamp appears.

 

Enjoy using JMP and please stop by the the JMP Community to learn more.
