    Will the formId always be numeric?

    Can the formId be some other value other than numeric, say a guid or other alphanumeric value?

    Hello, yes it will always be in a numeric format (e.g. https://jotform.com/1234567890). There's no way to change the actual auto-generated ID/number for the form.

    You can, however, do the following:

    1. Change the URL to a custom one: How-to-Create-a-Custom-URL-of-a-Form

    e.g. http://www.jotform.com/Noobian/Message_Contact_Form

    2. Or use your own custom domain: How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform

    e.g. http://forms.mycompanydomain.com/form/1234567890
