    Yes, date() is correct. The default will be set when a new record is added. The default attribute can be set in the formitem Field Attributes or in a table's Column Attributes. To apply the table Column Attributes to a section, the Section Attribute 'Inherit dictionary rules' must be checked (unchecked by default).

    Yes, good point: when an attribute is set to a dynamic value, saving the app (and I always refresh it at that point) is required. Refreshing the app without saving will lose any changes made in the attribute panel.
