Collector for ArcGIS: Restricting a date field to current date

I am building a recreation land use Collector app which has a date field. I want to be able to restrict users to only being able to enter the current date, and not be able to enter a past date (or a future date, for that matter). This is because I want to discourage users from adding features from memory. This app will be used to track damage as a result of recreation, and it is important that users cannot change the date. I have read research that mentioned the date can be restricted in other platforms like ArcPad, but I do not know how or even if this can be done using Collector. 


Does anyone know how to restrict a date field in Collector to the current date?


Thanks for the help,
