To have a field default to today's date, I add JavaScript code to the footer element of the data page. (make sure when you are adding code to the footer element that you add it in the source and not the text editor.)

<script>
/* Today's Date */

Today = new Date();

var dtTodayDate;

if ( Today.getMonth() == 0 )  {
dtTodayDate =( '' + (Today.getMonth())+1 + "/" + Today.getDate() + "/" + Today.getFullYear() );
} else if ( Today.getMonth() == 1 )  {
dtTodayDate =( '' + "2/" + Today.getDate() + "/" + Today.getFullYear() );
} else {
dtTodayDate =( '' + (Today.getMonth()+1) + "/" + Today.getDate() + "/" + Today.getFullYear() );
}


document.getElementById("InsertRecordDate").value=dtTodayDate;
</script>

Hi @seancsn,

You can use a calculated field/value to get the specific part of the date. 

You can use this formula:

CONVERT(DATETIME, GetUTCDate(), 101)

For further information, you can check these documentations:

I hope this helps :)

Regards,

  1. Select the field in the datapage and go to the Advanced tab
  2. Under "External Associations and Defaults" section, enable the On load option and select "External Parameters" from the dropdown.
  3. Remove what is in the parameter text field and paste the today date parameter [@cbTimestamp*]
