How do I set variable metadata fields in templates?

In PhotoMechanic I am able to set a custom variable for the year in my copyright notice in my IPTC metadata fields. It pulls the year the photo was taken and sets that as the copyright year. Is there a way to do this in Lightroom Classic as well? I know the workaround to Smart Filter by year, then bulk apply. I want to do it on import though for future photos. Thanks!

There's no way to do this on import. You could use the Write Data Field command of the Bag-o-Goodies plugin to set Copyright to contain the year of the capture date for an entire batch of photos.
