Hi there,

this is my first post, so apologies if I am in the wrong place...

I would like to insert a "last modified" date in my topics, but can't figure out how to do this! The Date field inserts today's date whenever the topic is opened, and so doesn't reflect the timeframes of changes accurately.

I'd appreciate any help on this.

Thank you

Caroline

Hi there

When you insert the field, look at the options.

See that option for auto updating? Try clearing it and the field shouldn't auto-populate.

But note that now the onus is on the help author to ensure they perform the update if they want the date to finally match the current date.
