    You can actually also add a Date/Time field into your form with the default date/time set to ON, and you will then be able to know the data/time the form was submitted from the form respondent end.

    You can use the hide property of the date/time field so that the form respondent will not be able to see it in the live form, preventing them from altering the value.
