Can you use date/time concatenation?  That would keep you from having to use vbscript 'behind' the form.  You could just set the initial value of the Subject line.

You need to design a message form
For the subject, set the inital value to concatenate your text and Now()

ex. "Hello" & " " & now()

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
