FM - Setting Timestamp Field Based on Another Field set via a Script
Posted on 2011-03-17
This is really hard to test as I have a lot of scripts run off of my Status field. Already searched EE and FM Help. I want a timestamp field to be filled with the current date/time anytime there is a modification in my Status field. This seems easy - just put a script trigger on OnOjbectSave. However, what if the field is set in a script. I think this bypasses the trigger. I have so many scripts that alter this field (Retain, Retire, or Refer status) that it would be nice if I could just set the timestamp field to alter anytime this status field alters. I thought of doing this via the field's properties AutoEntry, but my understanding is that these fields only run on record creation and not any time in the future when the field might be modified. Suggestions?
