so workbench is the tool you are using to access what database (which makes all the difference), e.g.postfix. oracle. firebird, sqllite, .....

MySQL version 5.7
Are you referring to SQL Workbench/J or MySQL Workbench or other tool?

Note: you can do this from SQL syntax typically to set the initial default then you can use a Trigger on updates to update the column if your application doesn't send this automatically.
