    Add a "submission ID" for the customer to reference?

    Asked by zathrak on May 16, 2012 at 10:21 AM

    I have created a form that would be submitted to me by the customer. For the customer's reference, they would need a "submission ID" of sorts that they can refer to if I need to look them up. Is this receipt-like behavior possible?

    Every submission generated into our server actually have a unique id

    Once your customer press the submit button a notification is sent to you. So, in order to accomplish what you are looking for, you can set up an Email Notification Template as well as an Autoresponder template .

    Add the Unique id field (which is the submission id) into your templates, on either the Body of the template or the subject.

    Below you have a screenshot showing how to do it into an  Autoresponder


    And this screenshot shows the Notification settings
