eprint_fields_automatic.pl defines a function which runs EVERY time the eprint is updated in the workflow. You can use it to apply calculated values to fields based on other values entered on the workflow - e.g. faculty affiliation of creators.

NOTE: this function runs when you save the eprint, when you change the current workflow stage and also when you cancel the workflow editing as the eprint is reloaded from the database and recommitted to remove the edit lock.
