    Timer for hours and minutes

    Asked by arazer on June 06, 2015 at 10:57 AM

    Do you offer a timer that will measure hours and minutes. My form is a test that takes over 60 minutes and I would like to time the test.

    I do not believe there is a wizard to run for the time tracker field.  I think the wizard runs automatically and just shows the message while adding the widget.  The correct amount of time spent completing the form is indeed captured by it.

    It looks like this widget only tracks the time that the user is typing, is this correct? And is their a widget for total time (viewing & typing)?

    Thanks

    Hi arazer, 

    As per checking, the Timer and Time Tracker widget tracks the time starting from the form was loaded. See screenshot below for Timer widget sample. 

    You can use the Timer or Time Tracker widget to track the amount of time the users or clients spent in completing your form (viewing and typing).

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

     

    Regards.
