    How can I count how many minutes it took to fillup a form

    Asked by Cnicolita on May 24, 2017 at 02:09 PM

    Hi there,

    I'm building a shift tour for my operators. It's long list to check and lots of readings. I want to make sure they are not filling the form in office, they are actually go on field and check.

    I was thinking to input a read only field with time at start and one at the end. Then measure this time. There is any way that can be done?

    Unfortunately as soon you start filling up the form it fills up (reads) the actually time for both, start and finish.

    Thank you,

    You could add a "Fancy Timer" widget to the form:


    This will record the amount of time from when the form is opened to when it is submitted.
