Perch Event initial datetime value


Is it possible to set an initial value on this field in the event.html template?

<perch:events id="eventDateTime" format="c" />

The events are talks as part of a conference, so it would be good to have the field start at the first day of the conference, to make it a little easier for the editor

I don't think so - that's an old-style fixed field. Unless you need a calendar layout, the Events app might not be a good option.

Ah ok - thanks. Events was a good fit in this case apart from this issue, but I will bear that in mind for future work
