Hi all,

 

Is it possible to use a flow to auto populate a date field when you select a certain value from a choice field?  I've read that using a calculation field is not the best way as it'll update whenever the record is updated, however in this case, the completion date should always remain the same.

 

Many thanks.

On edit or update trigger , than switch and set date and time from variable.
