Hi @lisatam,

 

Is there a known bug in this version of Nintex Forms where using the {Created} list item property in a Calculated Value box doesn't display the exact timestamp, only a 00:00:00?

Hi @scrawford,

 

I am not sure, please contact support at support@nintex.com to confirm this is an issue.

 

Cheers,

Euan

Ok, thanks @EuanGamble, I will.
