I am creating a form and I am creating a check box field that I want my users to check and then that day's date to auto populate.

You could use a form rule that says

When [checkbox field] is checked
Change [my date field] to  (select) "the current date".

Then makes sure at the bottom it's set to only tigger when the checkbox changes fron false to true.

Thank you this worked great in the form. Do you know how to make this apply when you are using the grid edit as well? It is only updating the Actual Date column when I go into the form and check it.

Alas, Form Rules only work on Forms, not Grid Edit.
