Hi @proyrevistas,

That’s not currently something that’s available to submission-related email templates, but it wouldn’t be hard to add. See lib/pkp/classes/mail/ in the assignParams function – you’d need to add a variable based on $submission->getDateSubmitted(). If you’re able to make the modification, please consider submitting it as a pull request to github in case others would find it useful.

Could you please tell me in which part of the code I add the variable,

I do not have much knowledge in PHP.
