    How to show the date of last submission when going to it over edit link?

    Asked by guineapigme on March 04, 2015 at 02:49 PM

    Thank you, that is good for the actual submission, but what if I want to display on the form itself, the time of the last submission.  Right now, my form is simply displaying the current time.  Is there a way I can retrieve that field and store it statically somewhere such that it can then be redisplayed as the original time stamp.


    I am looking to provide a way of looking at the live (edit link) form and seeing the last time the form was edit/saved.


    I hope this makes sense.

    Based on what you have mentioned you could only add a DateField that you change each time before you click submit.

    Please note that forms are meant to be use for capturing data only, which is why such features are either not implemented or might not be implemented at all - that is unless you take the approach that I have mentioned above and set the date / time manually each time.
