how to truncate timestamp in now() in formula langugae

im using now() as a new column(refreshed_date) in Dataset to indicate dataset last refresh date,

but I want to keep only date in 'yyy-mm-dd ' format and truncate the timestamp, or if I have to keep timestamp I want it to be at UTC timezone level.

how can I achieve it ? Please help

Hi, 

You can use now().toString('yyyy-MM-dd') to keep only the date part. The results are always in local timezone in Formula.
