hide formula on new entry form gives wrong today date

New Contributor

i have a list column with a date field that i hide when a new item is created.

=if([$Status]=='Pending','false', 'true')

the date field is set to default value "today´s date".

when i create  a new item the date field is hidden but when i save it, it writes the wrong time.

the time is always the full hour next (ex. if time is 9:23 it shows 10 ecc.)

whithout the hide formula (date field is visible creating a new item) the time is ok.

what is wrong?


tx for any help

I tried this on my SharePoint tenant & I can reproduce this issue.

Below are my test results, where both dates have default value set to "Today's date":

I will suggest you to see if your regional settings are different than regional settings of SharePoint site.

For more information, check below documentations:

  1. Change your personal language and region settings
  2. Change regional settings for a site

If that does not solve your issue, Contact Office Support or Get support.
