Calculated Dates Dependent on Default Dates no Longer Work after 2.7 Update

I have two date fields. One is the date a turtle nest was found, or ${Date_Found}, and has a default value of today(). Another date field, called ${Days_Old_70} calculates when the nest will be 70 days old based on when it was found. This is very critical information because it tells surveyors when they can expect the nest to hatch. It uses the following expression:


date (decimal-date-time(${Date_Found}) + 70)


Before I upgraded to version 2.7, both the default date ${Date_Found} and the calculated field (${Days_Old_70}) would automatically fill in. Now, the calculated date remains null unless I click on the ${Date_Found} field and then re-enter today's date or I click on the calculated field,pick a random date, and then click refresh.


Is it possible to make it automatically refresh?

Thanks for your help.
