Another simple question… Is there any way to set the current date and time (now()) as the default value in a date field in a catalogue?

For example I have a field named Date Submitted and I want it to have the current date and time when a new catalogue entry is created.

Hi,

Could you try the newer fix I put in:
ocPortal.com - View topic: Having problem importing data into Links catalogue

I realised the fix I put here wasn't right, but then got my wires crossed between these two topics.

This is amazing Chris! Worked great! :) :) :)

Thank you so much, I just enter "now" as the default value and it shows up like it should!

I think this option should really be implemented in final 4.3, it's really useful! :)
