    Hi there,

    If I understand you correctly, you want to track the day the user completed the form right?

    I created a demo form, please check it here http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50237169707963

    Under Quick Tools you can add the DateTime function. After that, you need to hide the DateTime field so that the user will not be able to adjust it.

    Hope this helps. If not, let us know so we can further assist you. Thank you!
