Hi. Sorry, but I'm struggling to know how to do this. After my automation sequence, I want to update a date field with todays date to show when the automation ran. I've searched hard here, but I cannot find a way to do this. I've tried a formula in the chosen field to update, but formulas don't seem to be accepted in the 'update record' module.

Set up a field that just has the TODAY() function as your formula. Then in the “update record” part of the automation you can use that as the dynamic data for your field. It won’t be time stamped aside from the date but it sounds like that would accomplish what you’re looking for.
