how to add User Action on document field


how to add User Action on document field (I want to choose a date)?

I want to add action to rule (in User Actions of Approved state). I have only a few options: change state to, web action, workflow etc.).

I would like to choose a change date of document field.


Is this possible?

Thank you,

    Hi Agnieszka,

    User Actions are optional to the user for the configured lifecycle states.

    Does Arun's suggestion provide what you need?

    Vault Lifecycle Documentation: Document Lifecycle Administration

    Hi Agnieszka


    You can do this from Entry Criteria or Entry Actions Tab from the respective State . 


    Set field using formula allows you to change date for your date type .


    Hope this answered your questions

    Hello Both,


    Thanks for your replies however somehow when setting conditions, If wet-ink status equals Filed, then set for today if a field has no value -  and can't choose appropriate field "wet ink status change date' even it is shared field.


    Best regards,

    Hello Agnieszka,

    As long as the field data type is date and the field is used on a document type that uses the lifecycle it should be available in Entry Action --> Perform Actions.

    Are you able to see it after checking these two requirements?

    Thank you Both!! I managed to create respective entry actions and hid the field in the metadata.


    Thanks a lot!
