Default Value for DateTime field

Dec 26, 2014 at 8:44 PM
I have added a field to a Content type called DateAdded and set it as a DateTime field. Is there a way to set the Default Value for that field so that it shows the current date when a new entry is being created?

There is, but it's a bit tricky.

You can specify prefill-values when you open the "create" form. We use it for things like adding the page-id to a record or things like that. The feature is mature, but the documentation isn't :(
