This exactly is also an essential part of my workflow. I was also
looking for an "insert current date" functionality in org-remember but
realized that it is not there yet.  I tried to add it about a week ago
but did not find a simple way to get the date at which the cursor is
on the agenda (and also the time if on the grid), specially in the
case when there is nothing on that day (otherwise I guess one can
always read the time stamp from the entry you are at).  Unfortunately,
although I have done quite a bit of elisp programming I am not an
expert in the org code. Carsten, if you give me a hint I can give it
another try, or perhaps you can do just the part of getting the
time/date and I will do the rest (see below).

Linked to this, one thing I would also find very useful, and was also
trying to do, is being able to reschedule a given entry to earlier or
later in the grid (e.g., when trying to reschedule things during the
day).  I.e., sort of the same that we have for moving entries to a
previous or later date, but instead earlier or later in the same day.
If we can find a way to read date/time from the agenda view then I can
easily do this.
