Is there the possibility of a math function which returns the current dAsked by mlps on July 22, 2014 at 08:59 AM
Is there the possibility of a math function which returns the current date and time?
This is a re-post of a comment on Form Calculation - Math Function Reference
Yes it is, you can perform all types of calculations on date and time. Here is a demo form that you can clone to check out:
And here is a discussion about performing calculations on date and time fields:
Please let us know if you have any other questions or let us know a bit more detail about what you are trying to accomplish with this calculation and we will be happy to help.
Thank you for using Jotform!
Thank you for your response, but as far as I can tell, neither the example form nor the discussion include any way to get the current date and time. Although it is possible to get a date time field to use a default value of the current date and time, I can't find a way to update this when the submission is later edited. The easiest thing would be if there were a math function which returns the current date/time (like the NOW function in MS Excel, for example).

I just made a form with Time Picker widget and I think it might help
Please test my demo here
