Is there a way to capture the date the form was uploaded or submitted to the server in Survey123?

Also is there a way to capture the date/times for each opening of a form? for Example, if I have a form that should be done in several visits (the number of visits is not know!), to record the date/time for each visit?

Thanks

Hello @newwollyka

When a survey is published from Survey123 Connect (or website) and a feature service is created with the survey publish editor tracking fields are automatically enabled on the service. This means by default your feature service will have CreationDate field that will capture when the feature was created in your ArcGIS organization. If you created the survey based on an existing feature service you will need to check that the feature service has editor tracking enabled. 

 

To capture the date and time the survey was opened you can use the `start` question type in your XLSForm which will capture the start date and time of the survey. Please see this link for reference. You can also use the `end` question type in your XLSForm to capture the time the survey was submitted, but the CreationDate field in the feature service will tell you what time the feature was created. 

Thank you,
Zach

Thanks

But what about capturing the date/time for several visits or the date/time for each time the form is opened but without replacing the old values (like a history log)?
