If you want to receive, in lead details (sent through the email integration or any form integration), the date and time when the lead has filled out the form on your landing page, add a hidden field to the form. Then choose one of the two JavaScript codes, depending on the format in which you want to receive the information: detailed, i.e. Mon Jul 01 2021 12:00:00 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time), or date and time only, i.e. 01.01.2021, 12:00:00.

Remember:

  • You can always check the date and time of form submission in the Leads tab on the platform.
  • The date and time of form submission correspond to your account's time zone settings.

NOTE: This guide does not apply to forms on pop-ups and lightboxes.
