  1. Christoph Meier –  Have you guys thought about putting in a simple property to allow the date field's value to be pre-filled with the current date/time when they arrive to the dialog?

    1. Hello Emilio

      I'm not sure whether we already thought about that or whether there is already a ticket for this.

      However, feel free to suggest it - use the Suggestion Box
