    How can I get the current time not depending on the devices time?

    Asked by OperacionCI on June 08, 2017 at 11:19 AM


    I need to set up some conditions based on the current time, so I have a read only time field displaying the current time by default. But this current time is based on the device´s time, not the internet time or the server time, so if the user modifies the time on his device, he can by-pass the conditions based on the time field.

    Is there a way to get the current time not based on the device time?

    The current time default time option is picking up the current time of the device and that can not be changed. 

    Unfortunately, we don't have a widget that will pick up the time from the server.

    Maybe a certain counter could work? That will disable the form after a certain time set by you:

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!
