auto-entering today's date upon record modification

Hey all! I’m returning to FileMaker after many years away, and my brain is still dusty. I’m trying to figure out how to solve this problem:


I have a table called Recipients, full of people I’ve emailed a drip campaign. Besides their name and email address, each Recipient record contains a set of fields that indicate the date when each stage of the drip campaign was emailed to them. These fields are named Date Sent 1, Date Sent 2, Date Sent 3, etc.


When a person responds to an email, I want to manually enter the nature of their reply into a text field called Response. As soon as I edit the Response field, I want the Response Date field to automatically get filled with today’s date.


How do I do this??!?


Thanks! :-)
