Workflow to set current date

Hi i'm trying to create a Workflow in Business Process Rules to set the current date in the "Date and Time" column and change the status to Inactive when triggered. 


Here is the workflow config:




It works most of the time, however on some occasion (when mulitple records are edited) it will set the date and time in the past on 30/11/2021.


I'm really confused if i should be using an Action Step, Power flows, Workflow or realtime workflow to achieve this? I would prefer doing a non javascript approach if possible.

can you see in audit logs that it actually sets a date back in time? I’m wondering if the date you see is the unchanged date?

Hi Moximax, 

I can't find the audit logs for this process but i've found that it only has this behaviour when mulitple records are edited
