Insert current or future date within text of emails

Posting from GH: https://github.com/mautic/mautic/issues/6588

I’d like to be able to put the current date or a future date in the text of the e-mail.

For instance, when I send the e-mail today, I’d like to be able to do something like {date=now} in the E-mail Builder and it would output 14.Set.2018 in the e-mail or however dates are displayed, based on the contact’s preferences or the server’s way date format.

Also, as a bonus, it would be great if we could do something like {date=in_7_days} and it would output 21.Set.2018 in the e-mail.

If this can be done already, please someone tell me, I looked everywhere and found no information about it.

I’d like to say that this is a really nice feature to have, and I’ve been manually adjusting emails for over 1 year due to this.
