    unix epoch time is placed in text box when editing a submission

    Asked by FOE on July 06, 2015 at 12:34 PM

    I think there is a problem in the functionality when I edit a submission. The content of the first field gets replaced by date and time text apparently. If you go into the form to look at it, I have since re-edited it to be correct, but if you run a test, you will see what I mean. Thank you.

    I cloned your form to test it and I am able to replicate the issue in the clone.  I submitted a test and when I go to edit the submissions, the first name field is replaced with Unix Epoch time 1969-12-31 19:00:00:

    I replaced the original field with a new text field and there were no longer any issues editing the submission:

    It seems there is something buggy with that specific field.  I would back up your data prior to deleting the field however, as you may lose the data associated with it:
