Record a date on the start date field when the status's changed

AAL ✭✭✭✭

Hi Smartsheet Help Team,

When the status's changed to in progress, I want to set up the automation and record the date in the start date column and when it's completed, record the date in the end date column. However, it's said there are no date columns, but I have the start date and end date columns (see below). Do you know if there is any way I can do this other than automation?

Thanks in advance.
