Hello ActiveCampaign Community,
How can one set a custom contact field of type “Date Time” (not “Date”) to the current date & time in an automation?
Setting “Date” fields to the current date (without the time) is easy, because you simply need to add an “Update contact field to ‘’” action to an automation, then when it opens simply choose “current time” from the “New content” dropdown list.
Attempting to do the same thing for a “Date Time” field, but setting it with the current date & time (a simple timestamp) doesn’t seem to work the same way, because when I add an “Update contact field to ‘’” action to an automation, there is no dropdownlist with “current time”. There is only a blank textbox, and I don’t know what to type into it to set the custom contact field of type “Date Time” to the current date & time.
Thanks in advance!
