How to set Date field automatically to default today's date?



Is there a way to pre-fill a Date/Time field with today's date? 

I have a Date field that can be filled with today or other date, but most of the time will be today's date. If it can be pre-filled, people filling the form will save a step to select today's date from calendar pop up.

When displaying, click Edit beside Formatting. In pop upped Formatting Settings, Select Custom, then from the drop down menu choose what you want.

Howdy! This works when the field is display only, but when it's a text field with calendar popup, there's no format option.

If the OP wants the date and not the time on a user-changeable field they should use the option May Music recommended.

Both are great options, but cover different scenarios. :0)
