    OR...How do I make the hidden field show the date/time?  I want to do a conditional formatting so that if the form is submitted after a certain time, they will acknowledge that there is an associated late fee.

     

    Thank you for any help!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, such option is not available as of the moment .

    Thank you for using Jotform. Let us know if there's anything else that you require assistance with.

    OK, then how do I get the submission time (system generated) that shows up in the submissions to be a field in the e-mail responses?

    The simplest way to do this would be to hide the Time Stamp field by injecting the following rule:

    #id_7 {
    display: none;
    }

    It appears to me that the other hidden field (labeled "Time") is unnecessary.

    Incidentally, there's another way to have a time stamp appear in email alerts. Please see Using Dates in Email Templates.

    I'll pay $200 to the person who can make this happen:

    Child's name (drop down)

    Name of parent filling it out (text line)

    Auto-populated time, that users CANNOT fill in themselves.

    A pop-up acknowledgement of late fees if pickup is after a certain time of day.

    That functionality would require downloading the forms source code and adding some bespoke javascript.

    FXR, are you able to do that for the price I offered?
