Record survey start

Hello all,

I am currently designing a survey for my dissertation on procrastination. For this topic, recording the time the survey was started is very crucial.
However, I am only able to find a way to record the time that respondents have taken answering the survey/individual questions.

So my question is: is it possible to record the time at which respondents opened/started the survey?

Thanks in advance!
Bram

    Hello @bramineter ,

    We have a start date and end date survey meta data in the survey data analysis. Please see this

    Thanks for the quick reply. I saw that option already, however, and unfortunately the date alone is not sufficient for my research.

    I am specifically wondering if there is a way to see the exact time each respondent started the survey (other than adding a question at the beginning asking what the current time is, which is currently the best I can come up with).

    Time is also captured in that survey meta data.

    Other solution - You can create an embedded data and pipe in the current date time in it.

    Yep! @Shashi answered you already but this is the format I have it spitting out the start time to me, when I extract the data to a csv.:

    Thank you both for your answers.

    So just to be sure, the metadata that is recorded for every response automatically includes the date + time the survey was started, as well as the time it took to complete the survey?

    That would make sense, and explain why I had such a hard time finding an option anywhere to record this information, haha.
