@Today (Formula Language)

Returns today's date.



Return value


Time-date. Today's date.


This function is identical to the formula @Date(@Now). It is usually used in default value formulas to automatically enter the current date.

Using @Today in column or selection formulas may impact the efficiency of your application. It also causes the view refresh indicator to display constantly.

In a field formula, Notes/Domino takes the value for @Today from the client computer's clock.
