    I’m a total newbie, but I want to capture the time and date stamp of the form submissions. I searched the form and the help index for timestamp and datestamp but did not see this. Is this automatically included or do I need to add it?




    Last submission date is meta-data which makes it easy to use in reports.

    Most people who need date/time stamps use  hidden helper fields and a behavior on the button used for submit. Before the Submit object use  Set Field objects to set a helper date field and a helper time field. If you need to keep a series of dates and time you could use a hidden helper table with a time column and a date column. When the submit button is pressed add a row to the table and set the data and time fields (current row).
