How to create automatically "Today Date" if Checkbox is checked

Did you mean: 

I’d like to have an auto-created “Today Date” when a record is checked in my “Response” checkbox.
So every time a new customer responds, I’d like to have the received date created when I simply check the “Response” checkbox.
I can’t figure out the formula.

Hi @Horst_Pock ! Welcome to the community! :partying_face: :partying_face: :partying_face:

If the checkbox is only going to be selected once and then left alone, I often use a ‘Last Modified’ field and select the checkbox field as the ‘Specific Field’.
