now

For database data sets that directly query the database, now returns the current date and time using the settings and format specified by the database server. For file imports and Salesforce data sets, now returns the UTC date and time, in the format yyyy-MM-ddTkk:mm:ss:SSSZ (for example, 2015-10-15T19:11:51:003Z).

You can only add now to a calculated field during data preparation, not to an analysis.
