[Solved] How to set Date Input Component to automatically pick current date

New to Thunkable. I have looked over the forum but cannot find this solution.
I am making a list that includes the date input component. The current date automatically displays but unless i actually click on it and select today’s date, the result entered is just MMM D, YYYY. How do i set it to automatically input today’s date unless i select a different date?

Hello @scotthollandjr welcome to the community
To get the current Date you can use the following block

This block has the current Date automatically

You know what would be really cool is if that block could return it’s date optionally as a formatted “miliseconds since 1970”

Thank you, i figured out where i had the block in the wrong place. It’s working now.
