Programmatic Date/Time with Powershell

If you are scripting and logging your actions you will want to incorporate a timestamp of sorts. The following is a solid way of doing so:

  • In Powershell: get-date -format ^"{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss}^"
  • In CMD you would just call Powershell: powershell get-date -format ^"{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss}^"
  • Send your output to a log file: powershell get-date -format ^"{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss}^" >> C:\logs\scriptlog.txt
