    [Configurable List] How to make time field be current time as the default

    Asked by guineapigme on December 29, 2014 at 05:13 PM

    My last post for this did not show up.  Sorry if this is a duplicate.  This happens to me a lot. 

     

    I have a configurable list at the end of my form which has a textbox.   I want to timestamp this either through a static text or the date and time fields.  The date is prepopulated, but the timestamp is not.  Is there a way to make this happen?

     

    Thank you,

    We have a 'Default Time' option available for standard Time field, but unfortunately, there is no way to get that default time within the Configurable List widget at the moment.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and escalated it to our Development Team.

    There is no ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    Thank you.

    Hi, we have an update for the widget. We extend the option for the time field.
    You can set the time field data by using the following format:

    Time Field Label : time : 12(or 24 format)

    After the update, it is now

    Time Field Label : time : 12,now

    Notice the 'now' keyword next to the time format followed by a comma. It means that it will load the current time when the widget is ready. Its an optional, you can still use the old time field format just like before.

    Please make a test and let us know your feedback.
