    Would you like to know the date and time that you edit/update your form in the form builder? If so, you can do that from the History asection of your account: http://www.jotform.com/myaccount/history

    Another way to know the date, time and changes made to your form by using the Revision History feature: Introducing Form Revisions: Never Lose Your Work Again!

    Please inform us if you still need assistance with this inquiry.

    No, I mean more like the automatic date/time that is stamped on a blog posting to show when it was last edited to the public.

    Sorry but we do not have such feature or widget as of the moment. We will submit this as a feature request so hopefully one of our developer will take this into consideration and implement it in the future.

    You will be updated here once this is rolled out. Regards!

    Excuse me, but what about the date/time single widget. That was recommended to me for this purpose, and works reasonably well.

    By the way, I guess this is more like on editing a text field. What I mean is, since you will be updating your form constantly, you can have a text field on the top of your form with date/time entered manually and then update the date on this text field after updating the form. I guess this should work better, or at least this will be a good workaround. If you need further clarification, let us know here. :)
