    The date properties has the option to insert the current date but doesn't

    Asked by chogreport on April 20, 2015 at 09:18 AM

    The default option is None. I have tried entering 'Yes' but it doesn't do it. What do I need to do to get the current date added automatically?

    I have found the answer but it is not obvious. The property value has to be 'current' not 'Yes'.
