I think the closest you can get to this functionality is to add a relevant
to a calculated item (with calculation: now() ). The relevant could check
whether the last question of the previous section was answered. This is not
foolproof, though as you can't really guarantee the order in which
questions are answered.

Cheers,
Martijn

Make sure the data type of that now() prompt is dateTime and not date.

Also, I agree with Martijn. The timestamp approach he suggested is
likely to be unreliable. I'd encourage you to test extensively.

And to be even clearer, ODK Collect can only reliably record start
time and end (last saved) time.
