    It is possible by using the DateTime Single widget. What you'll do is you'll create 2 forms, for both check in and check out.

    Check the sample form that I created. (http://support.jotform.com/form/43592652502959)

    You can clone and create another one for check out.


    Hope this helps. Thank you.

    Hi Tim,

    I'm not sure if that's possible, because you have 1 form, then you want the user to input the check-in and check-out date at the same time? Form 1 is fetching the actual time, if the user check-ins, while Form 2 would capture the check-out date after the session or the participated event and click the finish and end button. 

    It will look like this:


    The 2 part form would capture actual check-in or check-out time.

    I hope this helps.
