Description rgb 2013-07-26 21:05:36 UTC
Currently, when creating a Date field in a Base table, there is an option to set a default value but values are not accepted and an error is produced (Bug 120366).

In addition to fixing the default value option so that it works correctly, it is suggested that the current system date be one of the default value options. This would be a substantial productivity improvement, eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same date.
