    To add a pre-filled date and time field to your form, simply add a datetime field as seen below.

    Then on the Properties option, select Default Date and set it to Current. Or if you want to pre-fill to a custom date, simply select the Custom field.

    Then turn on the Time option and set Current as the default time.

    You should now have a DateTime field that is automatically pre-filled with the current date and time.

    You can check out this demo to see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/60867900973971 

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
