Create new date/time field

Hi all!


I have EE and I'm trying to figure out a way to make a date/time field that updates once a record is created.  


I can make the date field no problem, but adding the time in is beyond me.


Any help is appreciated!


Thank you!




Try using the below format:



(e.g.: 2012-03-16T01:02:03Z)


Maybe I should be more clear - I have  workflow rule that updates the field I'm trying to create.  I can get the day to come in by using the TODAY( ) formula, but I still want the time also. 


Does that make sense?


use NOW() instead, although you do know there's a standard field that track when the record was created.


Thank you, I will try that.


Yes, I'm aware - but I need the field to track all of the way through lead and contact for different lifecycle statuses.  


Will NOW () work with a text field?  Sorry for all of the questions.


Thanks again!
