Changed default cell in Sheets to today’s date – How do I default it so it displays this cell at startup?

I used this script to default the cell to today’s date – How to make Google Sheets jump to today's row when opened?

function onOpen() {  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();  var sheet = ss.getActiveSheet();  var range = sheet.getRange("A:A");  var values = range.getValues();    var day = 24*3600*1000;    var today = parseInt((new Date().setHours(0,0,0,0))/day);    var ssdate;   for (var i=0; i<values.length; i++) {    try {      ssdate = values[i][0].getTime()/day;    }    catch(e) {    }    if (ssdate && Math.floor(ssdate) == today) {      sheet.setActiveRange(range.offset(i,0,1,1));      break;    }      } } 

The formula works and it’s great. Unfortunately the view still defaults to the top of the sheet but with the selected cell being the today’s date way down the spreadsheet.

I have to press an arrow key and the view will change.

Can I somehow alter the default view to the selected cell? As I’m writing this it may be as easy as scripting the down key after running the initial code.

I’m no coder though so the help would be nice.

Thanks!

Bind the DateTimeField field with Today’s date using SPServices and jQuery

How to bind the DateTimeField field with today’s date using SPServices and jQuery? I can’t use the default Today to set the column in the Sharepoint UI to use Today’s Date as the default value in my SharePoint 2010 SPList. My date field control name is: Request Received Date

When the newform.aspx is loaded, I need to bind this field with today’s date.

  <script type="text/javascript">  _spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("setRequestEndTime");   // Set the Request End Time to today's date    function setRequestEndTime()  {    var d = new Date();  d = (d.getMonth() + 1).toString()   + "/" + d.getDate().toString()   + "/" + d.getFullYear().toString()  + " " + d.getHours().toString()  + ":" + d.getMinutes().toString()     + ":" + d.getSeconds().toString();  //alert(d);     today = new Date();        todayDay = today.getDate();        todayMon = today.getMonth() + 1;        todayYear = today.getYear();        //alert('setRequestEndTime');        var tags = document.getElementsByTagName('input');        for (var i=0; i < tags.length; i++)      {            //alert(' tags[' + i + '].id=' + tags[i].id);            if(tags[i].id.indexOf('ff2_new') > 0)          {              //alert('HIT tags[' + i + '].id=' + tags[i].id);                tags[i].value = todayMon + "/" + todayDay + "/" +            todayYear;            }        }      }   </script> 

I tried to add the above code refer: (http://sympmarc.com/2009/05/20/pre-filling-column-values-in-a-sharepoint-form/”) in a content editor web part. but I didn’t get the value assigned to the datetime field. Sorry for my JavaScript skills, am unable to get what’s meant by ff2_new.

Update:

  <script type="text/javascript">   var $  j = jQuery.noConflict();   function PreSaveAction()   {     alert("here..........");   var txtDueDate = $  j(":input[title='Due By']").val();   var txtReqstRecvdDate = $  j(":input[title='RequestReceivedDate']").val();  } 

here the requestrecvdate is my today’s date. if i set the todays date value, i am getting “undefined” here. so i am unable to compare the txtduedate with the requestrecvdate. Hence I am trying to bind the today’s date with the requestrecvdate field instead of setting the column-settings–> Today’s Date

In Google Sheets, how do i add a condition that when Todays date is after a date in a cell, a checkbox will be ticked?

I have a cell with an “end date” and I have a checkbox under an “Inactive” labelled coloumn. I would like that checkbox to turn on when todays date is after the end date.

I can’t seem to add a formula of the checkbox cell without breaking it. So i have tried to a formula in the cell beside it saying:

=IF (E5 < TODAY(), G5=1, G5=2)

where E5 is the “end date” cell and G5 is the checkbox.

It’s not working. What am I doing wrong?

SharePoint calendar -need to display only today’s events

I have a calendar to track employee whereabouts. Sometimes the events can span over multiple days. On a “status board” page, I need there to be a view of the calendar to only display events occurring today.

I’ve tried using the filer where Start Time is less than or equal to [Today] AND where End Time is greater than or equal to today.

It is still showing future events. Any suggestions for me?

Jump to today’s date when opened

I have found a similar question here:
How to make Google Sheet jump to today's column when opened?

I want to do a similar thing, but I have the dates in row 5 not in the column. I tried several times to make it work by doing some changes, either in the first than in the second script, but it didn’t work. I’m really new, so I suppose the solution is easy, but unfortunately, I am not able to solve it by myself.

The code in the question I quoted is this:

function onOpen() {     var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();     var sheet = ss.getActiveSheet();     var range = sheet.getRange("A:A");     var values = range.getValues();     var day = 24*3600*1000;     var today = parseInt((new Date().setHours(0,0,0,0))/day);     var ssdate;     for (var i=0; i<values.length; i++) {         try {             ssdate = values[i][0].getTime()/day;         }         catch(e) {         }         if (ssdate && Math.floor(ssdate) == today) {             sheet.setActiveRange(range.offset(i,0,1,1));             break;         }     } } 

Please, can someone help me?

Jump to today’s date + offset 10 rows

New to scripting. Have a planner in Google sheets which is displayed on a monitor in the office. I have a script to make it jump to today’s date on open (found here). The planner is organized with 1st of January on top, 31st of December bottom.

I want to make the sheet open to today’s date +10 (row), like an offset if possible.

Script:

function onOpen() {  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();  var sheet = ss.getActiveSheet();  var range = sheet.getRange("B:B");  var values = range.getValues();    var day = 24*3600*1000;    var today = parseInt((new Date().setHours(0,0,0,0))/day);    var ssdate;   for (var i=0; i<values.length; i++) {    try {      ssdate = values[i][0].getTime()/day;    }    catch(e) {    }    if (ssdate && Math.floor(ssdate) == today) {      sheet.setActiveRange(range.offset(i,0,1,1));      break;    }      } }
