Is there any "time" type data format?

Is it possible to collect time data (e.g: Hours:Minute:Second) like “date” type data?

There are time and a date-time question types. I don’t see that seconds are supported.

In Enketo web forms seconds are disabled by default. I think this is because most users would find the extra field confusing and unhelpful. @Suman Could you help us understand the use case(s) where you need to record hours, minutes and seconds? As a current workaround the only option would be to add an additional integer question and limit it to values of 0-59.


You can collect time data using the meta data. It will show your start/end time in Date-Hours-Minute-Second in your data

I am working on a Water Boiling Test survey in a carbon credit program certified by Gold Standard. The survey asks for a 24-hour time date stamp hh:mm:ss. It would be helpful if it were possible to enable seconds for this use case. Thank you for letting me know if there is any way to enable a seconds timestamp feature in the enketo webforms.
