Description: This solution discusses how to include the current date in field mapping as a value using functions.
Environment: All
Versions: 2.2 and Higher


The current date or the date that the import is run can be added as a value in a date or comment field by using a function in the field mapping view. To add the current date to a date field or a comment field using the function column in the field mapping view:

1. Open the profile in question through ImportOmatic Configuration
2. Select the appropriate Record Type and Value Type for the data column
3. Click into the 7th column in the field mapping view of the profile window (see below screenshot)

4. The "Apply Function" window will appear, click the drop down and locate "Current Date", select "Apply"
5. A gear shaped icon will appear and that indicates a function is in use for that column.

This will allow the current date or date of importing will appear as a value in the field indicated in the value type for the specific record type selected.
