Recording current time in Survey123

Hi folks,


I'm creating a survey using Survey123. When setting a Date question type, you have the option of setting the default value to be today(), meaning that the current date will pre-populate this entry for the end user: How to pre-populate answers in Survey123 


What I'd like to be able to do is to apply this to a Time question type so when the user opens the opens the survey, this entry will be pre-populated with the current time, but they also have the option to change it if needed.


In the Survey123 documentation, I haven't found an alternative to today(), and from Excel's help, using now() hasn't been successful.

I know there are the Start and End question times which basically deliver what we want, but we need the end user to be able to edit them as well.


Currently users have to type the time in manually in a hh:mm:ss format - this isn't great for data quality purposes.


Does anyone have any suggestions or is this functionality not available yet?


Thank you!
