Problem with Today's Dates

02/28/19 Edited 12/09/19


My office recently created an Internal Communications Intake Form on Smartsheet. The problem is, the column marked Today's Date seems stuck on Feb. 20, 2019. How can I fix it so that it will actually record the date when a project is inputted on our form?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I would add a system generated column type. This will add the date that the row was created. It's not clear how you are getting "Today's Date" onto your document. A screenshot or example of a formula would be useful to help figure this out for you if you can provide one.

    Hi James,

    I agree with Mike.

    I think you've added a date column with the default date to today in your form. Am I right?

    Unfortunately, it will only add the date when you set it so it will not update at all.

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!
