That will be somewhere between super hard and impossible to do.

m》super hard and impossible to do.

It can be done easily with script easily and is very easy to implement. Easy!

To clarify your needs, when creating the new record what fields need to have their values set to a calculated value (eg set date field to be 7 days after some other date field) or a default value (eg specific date)? Or do you simply want an empty record created?
