Is something like this possible for the initial value of a column?

=IF([Outage] = TRUE, TODAY(),"",)

I know this is the same as Change Timestamp, But i’m trying to get the same affect without Change Timestamp or App Formulas in order to create an action on the column.

Sure. But the behavior isn’t the same as a change timestamp. The Initial Value expression is only evaluated when the row is being created for the first time.

Thank you! I think it will work for my use case.
