How do I create a field that always shows today's date?

Danielle Kellogg Updated by Danielle Kellogg

If you need a field that always shows today's date to use alone or to calculate other dates, you can use the currentTime() function in an equation.

1. Create an Equation field and set the Equation settings to the following:

  • Type: Date
  • Date Type: days
  • Result Type: Date
  • Leave the rest of the options as their defaults.

2. For the equation, enter the currentTime() function which will pull in the current date:

The date will update on a daily basis to the new current date.
