How to set date stamp and time stamp for the date signed field?

2 mins read

The Date signed form field records the current date and time when the signer opens the document. The account admin can set the default date and time format on the Business Profile page, and it can be modified if needed while preparing the document.

Follow the steps below to set the date stamp and time stamp for the date signed field:

  • Click on the Business Profile on the Settings menu to go to the Business Profile page.
  • On the Business Profile page, scroll down to the Date Field Settings section under the Settings tab, and you will see the Date Format and Time Format sections.
  • Select your preferred date format by clicking on the drop-down.
  • Then, move to the Time Format section and select your preferred time format. By default, the time format will be None. If you choose the None option, only the date format will be displayed.
  • Once you have selected the date and time format, click the Save changes button.
