    Dear Support,

    I want to add a function on my form which is a job card to enable the employee click start on the time they start a task and stop when they end a task and both values are recorded automatically. Kind of a stop watch.

    Is this possible.

    I am assuming you are looking for a timer to calculate how long a users takes to fill and submit a form. We currently have two different widgets that can help with this.



    Once the form is opened, the timer will automatically start counting.

    Please let us know if this helps.

    My Form https://form.myjotform.com/52772428694568

    is used by my employees to register the time they have spent on a given task every day.

    I would like to use this form as a clock card, when they start work I want them to have a button they can click to indicate the time they started work in the morning, then at the end of the day they can click stop and the function records the time taken automatically. That's what I am looking for.

    Unfortunately, we don't have a direct feature that would allow you to do that. A workaround would be to add a textbox in the form to allow an employee to manually enter the time they have spent for the day. Or, use platforms such as Teamwork to log times (https://www.teamwork.com/blog/mobile-timer/).

    I, too, am looking for the same kind of timer.  Has widget that can do this been created since this person posed the question last May?  If so, can you please direct me to the widget?  If not, is there any possibility of having one created?

    Thank you!

    Hello Cat,

    I opened a separate thread for you and we will attend it here. Since this is an older thread.

    Thank you!
