  • In the field properties for your date field, there's an option to default it to the current date.

    If the field you're trying to populate is actually a user field type then it should also have an option infield properties to default to the current user.

        Are you asking how to re-position the fields on the form when viewing a single record? Do you know if you're working with the legacy older Forums or the new style form?
