    What you need can be accomplished by using our Time tool. Using that feature you will be able to enable the time Range property so that you can ask for the Start and End time.

    Then to enable the function to show the total of time/hours just follow this steps:

    1. right click on the Time field and click on Show properties.

    2. Then switch to Yes the option Time Range Duration.

    And that's it I hope this helps.  Please inform us if you need further assistance with this inquiry.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, we do not have such option available. I have submitted a feature request ticket to our Development Team in order to add it, but I can not provide any ETA on it.

    We will let you know once we have any updates.

    Note, it might be possible to manually write a Javascript code to do these calculations with the form source. However, it can not be integrated directly into the editor, so that you will need a custom script and host the form by yourself.

    thank you, im surprised that there is not a weekly hours submission form ( like a truck drivers log book ) where it passes through the midnight
