    Can you customize the Submission ID?

    Asked by probationgrantprograms on December 01, 2016 at 06:26 PM

    Is it possible to customize the submission ID number? We are using this form for grant submissions and the submission ID is very long. Is there a way to shorten it or customize it in the settings?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to customize the submission ID, as they are generated automatically. However, we do have a widget that you can perhaps use as a Unique ID instead of the submission ID. Here's the link to use the widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement 

    Please follow this guide on How to Add a Widget to your Form? You can also check out our guide here on How to Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions?

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
