It has been raised a couple times before (here, here, here, here and here) but it is still not implemented.

Feature request:

Ability to specifiy a default value for date fields.

We have default values for single line text field and number field, it is reasonable to ask for the same feature for date fields. Ideally let us put a formula there, such as:

  • DATEADD(TODAY(), 2, ‘week’)

March 2024 update: still not available.

There is a bulky workaround: create a "Record template".
From there you can set a default value for a date field. Can even set it dynamically to the current date.
But creating new records from a template is not as user-friendly as creating a plain new record.
