Record a Date automation keeps updating to today's date.
I am using the "Record a Date" function to identify an Approval Date when the status of a request changes to "Approved."
The automation does record the date once the status is changed. However, once the date is recorded, the automation continually updates the date to the current date.
If a request was approved on 3/1, the Approved date field populates with 3/1.
The following day, the Approved Date field updates to 3/2, and continues on indefinitely. Cell history still indicates the status was changed on 3/1. It also indicates the Date field was updated on 3/1 AND on 3/2 by the Smartsheet Automation.
I am not having this problem with other Record a Date flows.
