Create a 'Calculated Date/Time' custom Field in jira

Hi all, I'm trying to create a custom field that should pretty much create a timestamp when certain events occur. For example, as soon as a user captures the due date field, the current date/time should be populated and stored within that field. I've been doing some research and to create a custom field is the only probable solution I have found to date but even that is now proving to be much harder than I initially anticipated. Has anyone ever done something like this before? I'm a bit clueless. Please assist or advise how I will be able to achieve this. Thanks and cheers, Riaan
