Is setting a default date for a table mandatory?

Hi @kousalya.jayasankar ,

When creating a table, it is not mandatory to set a default date. However, if the user wants to analyze the data over time, setting a default date can be very helpful.

For example, let’s say you have a sales table with columns for date, product, and sales amount. If you set the default date to be the current date, then every time a new record is added to the table, it will automatically be assigned the current date. This can be useful for analyzing sales trends over time, as you can easily filter and sort the data by date.

Alternatively, if you don’t set a default date, you can still analyze the data over time by using other techniques, such as grouping the data by month or year. However, setting a default date can make this process easier and more efficient.
