I'm trying to update a Start date based on a Status change to "In Progress".

I have the process builder meeting this criteria when the status changes to In Progress.

Below is the formula, I'm trying to default the Start_Date__c to today's date (the day they change the status)

[Engagement__c]Start_Date__c = (DATEVALUE(TODAY() )

    You don't need to use DateValue(), Today() return only date part by default. DateValue() function take date text format..

2. If you want to use CreatedDate the use DATEVALUE([Account].CreatedDate)
