    Hello KonsusOp,

    You can populate the hour and minutes fields just by doing the same with how you did on the day, month, and year fields. What it only needs is to match a certain value from the dropdown list.

    Example: https://www.jotform.com/61566747574368?projectDeadline[day]={deadlinecet:day}&projectDeadline[month]={deadlinecet:month}&projectDeadline[year]={deadlinecet:year}&projectDeadline[hour]=1&projectDeadline[min]=30

    So in order for you to see it in action with using placeholders/template vars, you will need to do an actual submission.

    If you have questions, please do let us know.
