Setting the Default Date for Date Custom Fields

Article ID: 660  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014

When you create a date custom field in Surround SCM, you must set the default date for the field. The default value is set when a file is added to Surround SCM or when a trigger fires that sets fields to the default value.

You can configure the default date using one of the following options:

  • A specific date
  • A specific number of days, weeks, months, or years from the current date when the field value is set
  • The current date on the Surround SCM Server when the when the field value is set
  • Leave the field empty (not set)

You can also include the time in a date custom field. For example, 5/25/2007 12:00:00 AM. You can configure the default time using one of the following options:

  • A specific time
  • A number of hours from the current time on the Surround SCM Server when the field value is set
  • The current time on the Surround SCM Server when the field value is set
