靳光光 June 5, 2023

Hi, I have set a custom field called "todotime", I want to trac the time when one issue is transfered from "todo" to "inprocess". 

I fill it like this, but it does't work, is there some rules?

Hello @靳光光 

If you want to set the field to the current date and time for when the transition occurs you need to use this value:

'%%CURRENT_DATETIME%%'

This is mentioned farther down on that screen.

No. Smart values are used in Automation Rules. They are not used in Workflow Transition Post Functions.

If you want to use variables in workflow transition post functions you will need to consider third party applications that can extend the functionality of workflow post functions.

@Trudy Claspill Thank you so much for you answer.

I tried to use the macro %%CURRENT_USER%% and the result was the accountId, is correct? 

I was testing with a Text Field (read only) type.

@LuisPinto  The field you creat must be User Picker (single user),  as below
