Hi @SunilK1990 


@RobElliottis what you need but I would like to give you 2 more options in case you're not able to figure it out.

  1. Use a formula to insert the date. In the field use the formula "utcNow()". This will provide you the current date and time and it will be saved to SharePoint.

2. Create a default field in the SharePoint column. Something like this. Then you don't even need to fill it in.
