Display in the form the date/time when the form was last updated

    I'm trying to create a form that will display within the form, when it was last updated.

    I created a test form: http://submit.jotform.us/form.php?formID=42447225802148

    I used the DateTime tool and made it display the current time and be read-only (for the real form I would hide this)

    I then created a read-only text field that inserts the time from the DateTime tool. 

    When a user saves the form and goes back to it at another time, the read-only text field shows the time when the form was saved but the DateTime tool does not update - when the page refreshes, DateTime loads the current time but then it immediately goes back to the time when the form was last edited.

    Is there a way of achieving of what I'm trying to do?

    Do you mean to display the last saved date and time of the form when not submitted? If so, it is possible by using our Auto-Fill feature.

    I've cloned your form and tested it. Please see the recorded session below :
