    I want to create a form as TAG, where I can put some issues detected, and then an email will be sent to concerned person.

    when he will edit the submission by closing the TAG, I need to know the opening date and closing date of my TAG.


    Kind regards.

    Greetings and thank you for your message.

    To achieve this, you need to add Get Form Page URL widget to your form. Then you need to add two date fields with enabled time, and the default value to current.

    To set the date to the current one, you can go to the Options tab:

    To enable the time and set it to the current one, go to the Time tab:

    If you wish to disable these fields so users are not able to update it, you can go to Advanced tab:

    After configuring the fields, you need to add the condition to check if the current URL contains the word Edit. If it does, the second date field should be visible. To get started, go to the form settings, open Conditions from the left menu, and add Show/Hide field condition:

    From there, create the following condition:

    Since hidden fields will not be sent by default, the first time you will see only the first date. When the form is edited, you will see both dates. 

    Let us know if this solution works for you.
