I set default values for my created_date and updated_date values in PGSQL: DEFAULT 'now'::text::timestamp without time zone
RADICORE imported the word 'now' in the field upon 'import columns' action.
This causes an error warning when you try to create a new record in that table.
I just removed an default.
Just posting in case somebody runs into an error like this.

Firstly, the correct value for that default would be "now()" as any word followed by "(...)" is treated as a function. 'now' in quotes is treated as a string and is totally invalid for a field which is supposed to hold a timestamp.

Secondly, you should remove "now()" from the default value in the Data Dictionary and set the "Auto Insert" property instead.
