Time independent of the device time the app is running on

Post by SKARA » August 31st, 2020, 4:17 pm

Hi dear CsPro users,

Is there a way in CsPro to capture time independent of the device time the app is running on?

Regards,
KARABENTA Sidiki

If you're trying to avoid dealing with multiple time zones you can make use of timestamp:

However, if you're dealing with incorrect system times then I don't think there is much you can do than try to make sure they're correct.

Thanks Aaronw for your response.
With the use of Timestamp, there are concerns when interviewers do not take care to set the time on their devices. It is for this reason that I need a time capture which is not at all related to the device used. This could be a function of the kind to capture the value of the universal time via an Internet connection and to compare this value with that of the device to force the latter to a normal adjustment of the time.
