It would be very convenient to have a button called "Now" in "Edit post" window in "Published on: date @ time" section.

Google likes to know when old posts gets updated. So it is recommended to update post "published on:" date when post content is updated. When a user wants to update publishing time and date of a post, he must click "Edit", then manually enter year, month, day, hour and minute of current date and time and then click "Update post". It is quite slow and dull process but it could be automated easily with a new button.

It would be very nice to have a button called "Now" which should automatically fill in year, month, day, hour and minute fields with values of current date and time.

Whenever a user updates post publishing date and time, the date and time that he/she usually enters is current date and time. The "Now" button would be a big time saver for users who update their posts.
