DateTime Input - Setting value to current time but allowing other selections

Hello all.

I am trying to use the DateTime Input to filter out a table of data as soon as the page opens. What I am attempting to do is set the DateTime Input to the current date automatically, while also allowing it to be changed to another date as a filter. When I bind the value to the expression dateFormat(now(), "MM/DD/YYYY"), it sets the current date but will not allow me to change it as it is bound. Does anyone know a workaround for this? All help is appreciated.

Use now(0). If you leave the poll time out, it defaults to 1000, which makes the binding repeat. When poll time is zero, the binding runs once.

Thank you, I figured it was something silly and small like that. I appreciate it!
