Why is our form giving wrong "Current Date" ?

    Dear Support,

    The current date is still not showing correctly on my form. What I notice is my browser doesn't receive the update from jotform, so it shows the date of the last time I viewed the form. After I check the current date in build form, it shows the current date when I view the form. I'm sure it will show today's date (4/16) when I check the form tomorrow. It looks like the browser on my laptop doesn't get the updated date info from jotform system. It's still remembering the date I view the form from the past. I hope you can regenerate this issue on your end. Thank you again for looking into this.

    This seems to be an issue with your form auto filling using data you previously entered in your form.

    What I would recommend is that you disable Auto-fill, test and let us know if this fixes the problem.
