    Can I create a Static Date Field

    Asked by caroberts on December 04, 2014 at 07:50 AM

    Can I have a date field equal to Today that remains static as soon as the form is submitted.  So when you return using the edit link the date remains the day of original submission?

    If so....how do I do that?   Make the field hidden upon submission (when all required fields are filled)?

    Use our DateTime field and enable the default date/time. You can then hide this field from your form so your form users won't be able to edit it:

    Kindly try that and let us know if there are problems.
