    Can I have the date the last change was made to the form automatically updated and displayed to users?

    Asked by michaelcullen on November 10, 2014 at 08:02 PM

    Where I have put "Last updated 11 November 2014", is it possible to make this update automatically each time I update the form?

    Also is it possible to reduce the blank space around the last 3 rows of text areas ("Roomtypes" & "Descriptions") so that they appear more like a grid?

    Thank you for an excellent product!

    Hello michaelcullen,

    Where I have put "Last updated 11 November 2014", is it possible to make this update automatically each time I update the form?

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to track the last edit time of form submissions or the form itself?

    Either way, it is not possible to achieve your requirement within the form editor. If you want to track the form edit time, it is not possible currently.

    If you want to track the last edit time of a any particular submissions, you will have to download your form's full source code to update the last edit time of any form field/date field which will be saved. It is currently not possible to refresh the value of a date field in edit mode.

    Also is it possible to reduce the blank space around the last 3 rows of text areas ("Roomtypes" & "Descriptions") so that they appear more like a grid?

    We would like to keep one question per thread. I have moved your question related to blank space to a new thread and you will be answered here:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/457244 

    Thank you!

    Thank you - it was the form edit time I was after. I just thought it might be possible because the My Forms page shows the Last Modified date for each form. Not to worry.
