    Thank you for contacting us.

    As far as I know, we do not currently have a now() function available at JotForm. It sounds like a good idea to have it implemented, so I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our Development Team for consideration. I can not provide ETA for when it will be implemented, but this thread will be updated once we have any news.
