    There is no direct feature to achieve your requirement. But if your requirement is to know what time the form was loaded and what time it was submitted, I think you can get both the date/time information.


    Here are the steps you should follow:


    1. Add one date/time field in your form.


    2. Enable the "Allow Time" and "Default Time" property of your date/time field. Please check the screenshot below:

    When the form is loaded, it will display the current time which will be part of the submission record. When a form is submitted, the submission view will also display the "submission time". In this way you can have access to both the form loading and the submission time as well. Please check the screenshot below:
