Issues get current time

Hello there,

i’m using Coda from weeks and i’m having a problem for getting the current time when Status is Done, i tried a formula and an automation and both aren’t working., could you check?

this is the page and you’ll find more info test

Thanks to whoever helps!

Hi @Giuseppe_Boinega ,

In your column4 formula (that I corrected), the issue is that the Now() will be dynamic [in fact I use that when I need a countdown or timer) > wrong solution

rather :
I tried to create a button to “finish” a task, that will :

  • set the status to “Done”
  • put the time of closing in Date using Now(), but just once, and wont be dynamic

I also changed your automation “Rule” that works now :grinning:, but which is slow

Please tell me if one of solutions (button or automation) are OK for you :wink:

I checked both cases and they work, thank you @Quentin_Morel!

I saw the issues, and I’ll learn from them :wink:
