I’m trying to figure out a way to set a default to a Date field. 90% of the time it will be Today, however I need to be able to manually edit (override). Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks -Stan

This can only be done with an automation & an additional field (a field of type “creation time“).

Your automation should trigger when a new record is created, and it should set your desired date field to the value of the creation time field.
