Segment “Ask a GCT”:


I was wondering why when I create a form the only option I have for a timestamp is the one on the screenshot. I have notice that others have a timestamp that looks like this "06/12/2012  10:00". I would like to have the date and correct time (according to correct time zone) all in one cell. Not date and time in military time.

Sincerely.

James

Chrome now on iOS (I put this in using it on my iPad - FD)

Not sure this is the right spot, but you can add images from your webcam to a document now.  It’s a choice in there.
