In one of my recent PowerApps portal projects there was a requirement to set the current date on one of the sign up pages. As I researched about it, I found articles using scripts to achieve this requirement. The problem with using scripts in such cases is not considering the fact that Client is investing time and money in a low code/no code platform.

Here are the steps you need to follow to do it in a no code way.

Step 1: Locate the Entity Form Metadata under Entity form and click on New Entity Form Metadata:


Step 2: Fill the Entity Form Metadata as below:



Active this Entity Form Metadata.

In this way, we are able to utilize the platform in a truly No code way.

Result below from PowerApps Portal page:


What is the learning: Try to utilize low code way wherever possible.

Hope it helps and Power 365ing as usual!
