    I'm using a standard "Text" form element and am trying to have today's date autofill.

    The form is a Direct Seller Agreement and starts by saying:

    This agreement is made on _____, between ...

    Instead of the underline/blank space I would like to insert that days date. Is there code for that?

    You need to add a Date Picker field and set it as Hidden

    After that click the Options tab and set the Default Date as CURRENT to set the current date automatically

    After that go to your "Text" field and edit it.

    Insert your Date Picker element by clicking "Form Fields" then click "Date"

    Lastly hit Save.

    It should now look like this one https://form.jotform.com/80017336348959
