It would be very useful to set “current date” as a default value for the date column. This would effectively be a column for the date of entry. The column would not be a formula, because the value set would be static (and still editable.)
For example, on October 1, I enter item A. On October 2, I enter item B. If I view the board on October 3, the date column for item A is October 1, and for item B, it’s October 2.
