    I have the time set to automatically insert the current time. However, it is not showing the correct time when the form loads.  It is showing one time on the mobile device, and one time on the computer, both of which are wrong.

    I believe the "default" time in the datetime field will reflect on the user's own time. However, I see that it does not correctly state the current time when in 24 hour format.

    2. This inaccuracy seems to happen when you enabled the following options:


    3. When I disable that in my cloned form, it now shows the correct time:


    Is this the same problem you are having? I'll forward this to our developers to have it checked and fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    This has now been fixed.  Sorry for the deay.  The correct current time will be shown when "save user language" option is seleced in form languages wizard.
