How can I populate a Date and Time field default that is over-writable

Hello all.  I have, what I think should be, a simple request.  I want to have a date and time field on a form default to 48 hours from the creation of the form (or Now when started) but be editable by the user and saved either way.  I think this should be easy but I cannot figure out how to do this.  Help please.

Re: How can I populate a Date and Time field default that is over-writable

Hi!

 

Unfortunately this is not easy Smiley Happy In Nintex Forms for Office 365, the classic forms, you don't have a rule/ option to "set field's value". Therefore you cannot place a field, set its value and allow users to edit it.

 

You can use the "calculated field" control, to display value calculated +48 hours, however users won't be able to interact with it.

 

Even in "Responsive Form" layout, where a "Set value" rule exists, it is not available for date/time fields.

 

The ony way I see is to use JavaScript, that will set that field's value, so that users are able to interact with it. No easy way though.

 

Regards,

Tomasz
