Unlock the data card with the datepicker in it and change the DefaultDate property from Parent.default to Today().

I think the correct formula should be:

 

If(SharePointForm1.Mode=FormMode.New;Today();Parent.Default)

 

Otherwise a selected date will be overwritten with Today every time you edit  your data...

Just to put my two cent in:  swap the ";" for ","s

If(SharePointForm1.Mode=FormMode.New,Today(),Parent.Default)

 

 swap the ";" for ","s

That's correct for the US - but in Europe/Germany it's an ";". For me this is the most annoying thing with the Power platform. Who the hell had the idea to distinguish the delimeter of a formula language by country settings?
