Auto populate closed date


Pravin Patil (104122122) | asked Jan 12 '17, 6:47 p.m.

Creation Date is auto populated with current date as soon as a workitem is saved for the first time (usually "new" state).

Is there a similar way to set up "Closure Date" when a work item is moved to a state that is part of "closed" group (for e.g. states like CLOSE, REJECTED, DEFERRED)?

Just use a calculated value provider to set the current date, depending on the attribute State changes. You may also want to make sure the "Closure Date" is empty before setting the value, depending on whether you want the value to be set only once.
