    I'm having problems with the timer widget

    Asked by Ckoepf on February 20, 2017 at 11:33 AM

    I want to use the timer and I don't want those filling out the form to see it. When I choose the hidden option in the options it no longer reports a time at all in the submission report.  Can you help?

    The reason you can't see the timer report because you choose to hide the field in the Advanced Properties of the Timer widget. 

    First, please turn off the Hide Field feature in the Advanced Properties. Here's how:

    Open your form and select the Timer widget field. Click the Properties button and go to the Advanced tab. Turn off the Hide Field.

    After that, go to the Timer widget wizard and choose the "No" on the "Show the timer on form?". Here's how:

    Hope that answers your question. If you need further assistance, please contact us again. Thank you.
