Is it possible to have a date field that is self-updating to the current date whenever my users are modifying one of their fields from the front-end?

Perfect. This works great! Thank you!
Last challenge for you. But I think it is a tough one. :( How would you set a value in a field according to the time elapsed since the last date the profile was modified?
The idea is to change the status of my members according to the last time they changed their profile. Is it do able?

the problem is when this change will be triggered, for example modified's date is triggered when a user update own profile, but something like this should be managed by a cron job.

Specifically, this is easly possible for example if the field is updated when the profile page is displayed, or for example when user make a login. But unfortunately these ways does not update all users and the update will be effective only when one of these event is triggered.
