Please respond. Need help as soon as possible!!!!

When calculating durations there are several options. You can use metadata to capture start and end and then calculate the total length in your data processing. Note that if the form is saved and the reopened for review before submission, this will change the end time. This won't help with measuring duration of different survey parts.

For your need, you can use lightweight timestamping, or you can use a form audit log.

Hint: end will also change when you edit a submission on server level.
