Reproducing the Issue
Go to People Profile > Click on a portlet and try to enter a date entry. The date field is not populated with date.
Date Fields which are auto-populated are configured as lastModified
and not as startDate
It is not recommended to use the "lastModified" works differently with start and end date. The last modified ensures that subsequent changes will be tracked.
In the backend, there is a field orderPos contains the counter value for each record entered in a background portlet, and this number is automatically updated by the system if ‘OrderPos’ is not valid. When a new data is entered, the system is validating and will re-order ‘OrderPos’ for each record.
In this case, the field orderPos was changed by the system, then the last modified changed to current date for all the previous comments.
