    Change Default Date/Time in UK Timzone based to be displayed on Form

    Asked by lsmindia3 on April 22, 2015 at 04:35 PM

    Finally my search ended here. I wanted to change the Default Time (Time zone) on my form to show/pre-populate UK time instead of end user's system time.

    The Account settings time zone is already Europe/London, but it does not have any affect on the time shown on my form: http://form.jotform.us/form/51096199112152

    Any work around to this will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    For the time being I have embedded London clock Widget on the form for our agents to refer to UK time and enter it manually in the Jotform. However, would still want to auto-populate UK time by default if possible. Cheers

    We automatically capture submission date/time with form entries. The 'Submission Date' on the form Submissions page will also honor your account Timezone settings.

    If this is not enough in your case, please let us know. We can attach a feature request ticket about a form time field auto-population based on a Timezone.

    Thanks for response. But Submission date has nothing to do with the date/time field on the form.
    I need the date/time field to auto populate the current UK time instead of computer time before the user submits the form.

    Submission date is totally different subject all together.

    So if you could add a ticket for feature request please. Cheers

    I have raised this as a feature request. We'll let you know once there's any progress about this.

    You may also want to implement this function into your form source code. Here's one I've created in JSFiddle http://jsfiddle.net/3vkkL42n/

    Let us know should you need help. Thanks!

    Thanks, but coding/programming is not my cup of tea. I like using WYSIWYG editor! +Our lead form is constantly updated so changing source code every now and then not possible for us. But I'll keep your solution bookmarked if ever we move to self hosted environment.
