    You may want to add a date time field first then just hide it. This will enable you to add the Date field in the notification email.

    Test this form... http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30087488394970

    Check the autoresponder email for the response.

    If this is your form, I don't see any date field on it  , so you might probably have deleted it

    Please add the field to the form and then make sure it's on the email body, otherwise, add it from the field list
