How to display the start time of the survey on the form?

Hi, I have the date display on the form screen for the surveyor, but I want also to show the start time on the same form, once the surveyor start filling in the fist question. Is that possible?

start time is a metadata question. Metadata questions will not appear on the screen of the phone, but you should see them when viewing your submitted survey data. If you wish to display them in your survey, you should use a note question and then use them as outlined in the support article Responses Inside Another Question.

Ok did that, but I couldn’t figure out how to display the time. I used the format-date-time(${test_date}, “%H:%M:$S”) in the calculation field, but it didn’t display the current time. I simply want to display current time (hours and minutes only)

@mabdulkareem, try as outlined in the post shared below and it should solve your issue:

In the survey tab of your xlsform:
