    If you want to include the current time of the user submitting the form, you can add a Time element on your form.
    Set the element to Read Only in the Advanced Properties so that the users cannot change it. You can also hide it using Custom CSS if you don't want the users to see it.

    Also, set the Minute Stepping to 1 and the Default Time to Current.

    After doing this, the current time of the user submitting the form should be included in email Notifications and Autoresponders.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    To show the Submission Date and Time in the PDF, make sure that the Submission Date option is checked in the Submissions Page of your form.

    Then, you can set the PDF Attachment option to YES in the Advanced Settings of the Email Notifications and Autoresponders.

    Make sure you save your changes.
    After making this change, the PDF version of the Submission will be attached to the email that is sent and the PDF will include the Submission Date and Time.

    Unfortunately, the submission date and time option is not available with email notification/autoresponder. However, as metioned by our colleague, you may consider adding date field with current date and time so that the field data can be used in the email notification/autoresponder.

    If you do not want to display the date field on the form, you may hide it from the field properties.

    Thanks!
