    Timestamp on a submission PDF

    Asked by udruga on July 29, 2014 at 04:22 AM

    Hello great JotForm team!

    I have made a form implementation with Dropbox which creates a folder and a file upon sending filled in form. It works great, but there is a wrong time stamp both on Dropbox folder and on a PDF file that is created. The date stamp is correct.

    The time zone im my account settings is setup correctly (i'm from Croatia, so +6 hours from USA), but my folders and files are getting wrong time stamps (that is from US time zone). I understand that it may be some latency when some options are changed in my preferences, but here i have changed the options 5 days ago, and the problem is still there.

    Is there a way to fix this? 

    Thank you very much!

    Try changing the time zone in your dropbox account.

    Please follow this guide on how to.

    1. https://www.dropbox.com/account

    2. Account preferences

    3. TimeZone

    4. Since Croatia is not is the list you just choose any country that is with GMT+2. ex. Albania


    Then make some test it should show you the correct timestamp.
