Store current datetime in variable in Selenium IDE and use it for a random email address

I use variables all the time. And to be able to re-use a test over and over again, I need random email addresses whenever I fill in forms.

For this I define a variable with the current date and time and then a variable which will hold the email address which uses the current date and time.

My random email address will look like:

Just store the following as 1 string into the ‘Target’ part of your command.

const date=new Date(); return String(date.getFullYear())  + String(date.getMonth()+1) + String(date.getDate()) + '_' + String(date.getHours() < 10 ? "0"+date.getHours() : date.getHours()) + String(date.getMinutes() < 10 ? "0"+date.getMinutes() : date.getMinutes()) + String(date.getSeconds() < 10 ? "0" + date.getSeconds() : date.getSeconds())

It will look like this in Selenium IDE:
