    How to Show Time Difference on Report/Notification Email?

    Asked by ellie123 on October 08, 2014 at 11:48 AM

    Hello - I am using the TIME field and have enabled the time duration option.

    It works good on the form, however the duration difference is not showing in my Notification Email. It's only showing the 2 times.

    Here is my form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42684369949980

    Below is a screenshot of the email so you can see that the time difference is not shown. How can I add this time difference to my emails and report?

    Thank you,

    You are right. Unfortunately for now this is not possible with the time range option. In order to have the time difference emailed it is necessary to use two time fields and then add a Form Calculation field:

    In this Form Calculation field you need to subtract both fields:

    You can test and clone the demo form:
