    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

    Submission date will be shown based on your account's selected timezone. You can check your timezone from your account settings:

    It might be helpful to use Get Visitors Location widget. With this widget, you could get the timezone of the form submitter.

    Please check the widget:

    Also, you can follow this guide to obtain the form users' browser info so you could get the timezone information:

    When i change the timezone it won't have any affects on the formulars filled in i hope.

    They all stay as they are and only the time changes.

    If you change the timezone of your account, the timezone of all submissions will be changed as well. But the other submission fields won't be changed.

    You can refer this gif given below:

    1) firstly the timezone was GMT+3 submission time was 17:19.

    2) the timezone was changed to GMT+1 and the submission time change to 15:19 as well. You can see the other fields still have the same values.

    -> if the timezone was changed to  GMT+3 once again, the submission time also would be changed to 17:19 again.
