Date/Date and time

The Date and Date and time item field types render a datetime selector where users can select a date or a date & time (Figure 1.1). The date & time can be left as not set or it can be set to preconfigured value.

Figure 1.1 Date and time

To get the current date and time that is present in your timezone as the default value:

  • Open the field settings for the item.
  • Locate the data section
  • Type in '' NOW '' as the default value 

The current time will then always be the default value when you use the item type.
