Go to section:


The Last Updated field is a read-only system field that is a default date field created with all new apps.

It tracks when records were last updated, along with the member who created it and the time.

The Last Updated and First Created fields are displayed in record footers but are available to display in views and saved views. They also can be used in formula fields. New records display the First Created information in the footer until it is updated. From then on, the footer will show the Last Updated information.

The footer includes a link to the Member Profile of the user who Last Updated (or First Created) the record. This way you can contact the teammate who last updated the record to obtain further information. There's no hiding work in SmartSuite!

The Last Updated field is a system-generated field. It cannot be duplicated, changed, or deleted.

Important Note: The date and time values are displayed in the time zone the viewing Member has selected in their user profile. Members can change their time zone by clicking Edit in the General Preferences section of their profile. Time zone defaults to the Workspace's time zone value, which is set in the Workspace Preferences section of Workspace Settings (in Workspace Administration).

Display Formats

Solution Managers can choose the following display format when configuring solutions:

  • Avatar

  • Date

  • Avatar and Date

Choose the Date Format as "Days Ago" or "Date". If the Date is selected, Solution Managers can opt to display the exact Time records were created.

NOTE: Since the Last Updated field is located in the footer of records, Solution Managers should adjust the default display options by adding the field to Grid View and modifying it from there.
