touch(attribute = nil) public

Saves the record with the updated_at/on attributes set to the current time. If the save fails because of validation errors, an ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exception is raised. If an attribute name is passed, that attribute is used for the touch instead of the updated_at/on attributes.

Examples:

  product.touch               # updates updated_at
  product.touch(:designed_at) # updates the designed_at attribute
