Note Note

The cloud storage feature described in this article is no longer supported in Office 2013 and Office 2016 and may result in the following error:

Sorry, we’re having server problems, so we can’t add <service> right now. Please try again later.

For cloud storage for Office Online, Office for iOS, and Office for Android, you can look into our Office Cloud Storage Partner Program.

The result of the Now function changes only when the column that contains the formula is refreshed. It is not updated continuously.

The Today function returns the same date but is not precise with regard to time; the time returned is always 12:00:00 AM and only the date is updated.
