Auto-enter date in date column Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi - is there a way for OO to auto-enter the current date for a new list item when there's a date column for that item?

Thanks,
rich
 
No, but it wouldn't be hard to cobble together a script that put the current date in all blank fields in a date column...

How does one trigger a script on the creation of a new list item in OO?

One doesn't, except by remembering to do it by hand :-) But you could run the script after you were done editing. I'm unaware of any post-editing-event hooks to run scripts in any Omni software, though OmniPlan does have a framework for specifying actions to be taken after saving a document.

Ah, that's what I thought, though you had my hopes up for a minute... Surprising this isn't an option.

Thanks,
rich
