Autofill the date field / variable with the date of signing the document (Today's Date system variable)
Auto-populate the date field / variable based on the date the document is signed

If anyone from PandaDoc is actually listening, you might want to work on moving the status of this request or provide a response to why you have decided not to implement this feature. It's pretty important to a LOT of folks (over 450 votes). Given it was requested over 2 years ago, you might think it would have moved to "In development" by now.
This could be the reason we switch back to DocuSign. Is it that difficult to get this added?
Steve Harris commented
Unbelievable that this is not a standard feature. Literally the 2nd most important thing after the signature. Signers could choose any date they like... thereby falsifying a 'legal' document. Madness
Virtuous Solutions commented
Please fix. Thank you!
Greg Abel commented
Wow, I am trying all eSigning services and I CAN NOT believe this is not a thing. The top two things you need to build a service like this is 1) signature 2) date signed 3) Full Name. PandaDocs doesn't have 2 of the 3? That can't be right? Please tell me I'm dumb and just don't know where to find it?

How is this still not a thing lol
Richard Volpe commented
After the signature itself, this is the next most important input for a legal document. We are looking to replace Docusign with Pandadoc, but without this seemingly basic feature, it is difficult to make the change to Pandadoc.

Please add this, increases the level of friction for our clients by two additional steps.

How is this not a thing?

Every other signing platform has this.

PandaDoc needs a new Document.SentDate variable. Use case: We create a document and the "Document.CreatedDate" variables is added in several locations. Other departments then edit the document and approve it days later. Before we send it, we must now manually edit all of the "Document.CreatedDate" variables to todays date. We either need a new variable called "Document.SentDate", or the ability to manually edit a Document.CreatedDate parameter in one location so all of the "Document.CreatedDate" variables update together.
For example, on an uploaded PDF where there is a spot for signature, name, and time of signing, can there be a way to input the time there of when the document is signed.
I'm a new user and I am BAFFLED to learn that this is not a standard thing, how is an e-signature to be considered legally binding if there isn't an audit trail and a user can just pick a date out of thin air. Please FIX this ASAP

272 votes and this feature is STILL not part of this very expensive software! It doesn't make sense for me or my client to type in the date of the agreement when it should be prepopulated based on the signing date. The signing date is a generated field within the document, how hard is it to allow this date to be placed anywhere in the document?
John Anchor commented
Don't understand why this isn't a feature. If it's because of competing products, just know every pair of socks has a hole where your foot goes. To auto-populate the date, the signer signed, is that basic.
Jason Richman commented
any updates here? this seems like an extremely common use-case for all subscription businesses and is causing some major headaches for our sales team.

Getting on towards 2 years since this seemingly basic feature was requested,
Any update please?
Todd Harrington commented
This is such a fundamental feature. It needs to be added or we need a workaround ASAP.
Kateryna Antonenko commented
When signing, a user is able to pick up a date of signing from the past/future/any date.
Please add option that allows choosing TODAY only.
