Newbie question regarding ODK Build functionality

Greetings All

I've jus recently jumped on the ODF band wagon and am quite impressed by
it. ODK Build is so easy to use, but there's where I think I'm missing
something. The sample forms (new widgets in particular) shows how to add
the Date & Time entry as well as use an Auto Advance (appearance="quick")

Is there some place in ODK Build that I can achieve the same result as at
the moment I have to export to xml and then edit the necessary bits.

Thanks in advance
Dustin

This is primarily an issue of available developer time. Keeping everything
up the the latest capabilities of ODK Collect is difficult to do.

We have a paid developer (Nathan) who, along with many other things,
supports XLSForm.
Build is maintained by a very capable volunteer (Clint) who has very busy
day job.

So we can get a date field but to have date and time we have to go through
the home XLSForm process? If so why not just add that one to iBuild.

thanks
