    timestamp when button pressed or QR code scanned

    Asked by Ryan on October 17, 2013 at 04:39 PM

    This is a two part question for anyone who wants to help. I would like to use a QR option at my work as a employee task accountability tool. Follow me for a second...

    1. Through a Jotform survey I would list the required tasks for a regular shift.

    2. Next to each task location would be a QR code assigned to that location. The staff would scan the QR code when completing said task and it would record the time that task was completed.

    It seems so simple. Technically, the only feature I need is a button that, once clicked, inputs the current time into the question/task on the survey.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    Hi Ryan,

    Good day! What you want is to input/enter the current submitter's time into a form field with the use of a button? How about adding our DateTime field? And let the submitter input the current time? That should work? Do you want this to be automatically done without them to be able to edit the time?

    Thanks
