Is there a way to add a hidden field that automatically enters a timestamp when a user submits a lightbox form?

Hi there,

This is a bit of a "no" and "yes" answer. The "no" portion - I checked in, and there isn't a way to put a hidden field in.  The "yes" portion - We do collect that information, just not where it shows in the app (yet, I can put in a feature request for it to be brought in). What you can do to see that timestamp, is export the group that you have created just for the Lightbox, and within that export is a timestamp attached to the contact since date. 

Let me know if you would rather see this information within contact fields. I will put in the feature request.

Thanks for your reply. It would be great if it was captured in contact fields. My ultimate goal is to be able to segment lightbox signups the way we do other signup forms so I can easily report on success by acquisition campaign. I was brainstorming for a workaround.
