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..

enter image description here1. If you want to use today then use the formula TODAY
2. If you want to use CreatedDate the use DATEVALUE([Account].CreatedDate)

  • how do you default today's date but not override the date each time the record is saved
