Hi

Can anyone please let me know how to set current date and time stamp?

I opened my data file and the date and time were recorded as follow-

Date last action: 1980-01-01 00:00:00
Date started: 1980-01-01 00:00:00

How to change it to current time and date?

I looked at the help page and it stated: This field allows you to determine whether the survey will datestamp all responses. If you choose "Yes", then when a response is submitted, a field will be included in that response indicating the time and date that the response was made. (See configuration settings for $timeadjust setting).

Can someone please tell me where to find configuration settings and how to adjust the $timeadjust setting?

Date and timestamps will only be recorded if your survey is NON anonymous.

Hmmm.. this is interesting. Because before my limesurvey was upgraded, the date and time was set properly even though the survey was anonymous. Now all I am seeing is 1980..00:00:00. Is this feature new to the upgraded version?

Hello,
1.90 + 1.91 : date only for non anonymous survey
first 1,92 : date everywhere
last 1,92 : like 1,90 and 1,91

I really need the date and time stamp. Is there a way to get round this? Any coding? I am using version 1.92+. Thank you so much for your precious time :)

Just set your survey to be non anonymous!?

Alternatively, fill a hidden text question with the current timestamp using some Javascript or the date() function of the Expression Manager: docs.limesurvey.org/Expression+Manager&s...mplemented_Functions
