Request: Adding Form Submission Time to Wix Automations

Feature Request
We are collecting votes for this issue
Currently when setting up an automation with Wix Forms or forms made with input elements, it is not possible to use a form's submission time in the action. Setting 'submission time' would allow you to add a timestamp for different actions, based on the exact time a form was submitted.
As a workaround, you can add form submission time using Velo by Wix, a platform used for building customized web applications. See the workaround below.
We are always working to update and improve our products, and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

To add form submission time in Velo:

When working with forms in Velo, you can create a variable that equals new Date ( ), and write an onClick event handler for the submit button that defines the hidden fields value to equal the new Date ( ) variable. For example:
1$w.onReady(function () {
2    $w("#wixForm").onWixFormSubmit((event) => {
3        let time = new Date();
4        $w('#hiddenField').value = time.toString();
5    });
Make sure you add a text field ('short text' in Wix Forms settings) and set that field to 'hidden' in the developer console. Adding a date/time field will not work for this solution.
