Not a big deal at all.  I know how to defaut a datetime field to Today (that is awesome)!  Is there a way to default the date to blank like normal but the time to PM instead of AM.  It removes one click for our users.  Not huge, but thought I would ask.

If not, I can say I tried.

I don't think there is a way to do this declaratively,  but with some javascript you can create a custom renderer that grabbed today's date and parsed the time segment out, replacing it with 12:00 pm. 

I don't think that's the answer you wanted, but its about what I can get done today...

Hi Rich,

Have you or anyone ever figure out the Custom Renderer to be able to accomplish this?

My users often forget to change the time.. and reminders @ midnight not very useful :(

In SF classic view, at least they could click the "today" function in calendar to automatically insert today's date and current time. Did not find a way to mimic that either yet.
