I would like to add the function whereby in teacher site, they are able to see the time their student submit their report.
Is it possible?
You can display the time an entry was created and the time it was last modified. The patterns are (respectively):
These patterns can be futher extended to display time or date parts. For example, you can use the following pattern to display only the date part of the entry's time modified:
Yes, you are right. I actually have been thinking about that recently. This could be a fairly easy improvement of the time field. It would allow you to use a time field in the entry submission form such that it will save the time on entry submission.
If I understand Itamar correctly, the time field of the Dataform module needs to be improved. The current time field doesn't have the functionality to save the submission date of students permanently.
With kind regards,
That's correct. The improvement can be in the form of a time field pattern that does not display input elements in edit mode so that the time cannot be selected by the user, and when the entry is submitted, the submission time is stored in the field content. Feel free to open a tracker issue for that. I'll probably get to the next release in mid december when the term ends. I've been working on quite a few new features and improvements that might go in that release.
Looking forward to the new features.
Have you work out the submission time?
