 Something like the way the Drawing Label Tool works?

There is a Data Stamp tool that I don't believe is in any palletes.

I added it to my Dims/Notes tools.

Edit you work space, and go to the Tools Tab, and expand all tools.

It's just after Data Cable.

See image attached.

To the right is what it looks like on the drawing

You can also write a vectorscript and/or python script to read the system date and write the date to a linked text field in your own symbol.

A plugin can insert an instance of your symbol and then write the date data to a predefined field in your symbol.
