I have a ‘Date’ field. 99% of the time it is the current date. It seems that I can’t set a default value to appear in the form field (which seems like a major omission). Can I use the form prefill to do this? I tried this:

https://airtable.com/1234?prefill_Date=TODAY()

and

https://airtable.com/1234?prefill_Date=TODAY

But it didn’t understand “TODAY” or “TODAY()”.

I did not see a simple way to filter records that were created from public forms so I decided to use a different field on the form vs in my datasheet view. Filtering public form records was the primary purpose of the {Form Date}.
