    One tip (that you may already be aware of):  When using system data fields such as ${CurrentDate}, you can only test them at run-time.  If you try to preview your form from the form designer, the system fields will not resolve.  You have to publish the application and then test it.

    I usually set a hidden field to the current date as the default value, then copy that value into fields like this one when users select certain options.
