    Can I get actual submission date to populate on forms, rather than letting respondent select date?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is possible with a DateTime field configured with a Current Default Time.

    Note that we also automatically include server submission time with each form entry.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Click on the gear(1), then select Hide Field(2) as shown below:


    In your form builder the DateTime field will displays as follows:


    I hope this helps.
