    How to get the submission ID of the form submissions

    Asked by mgerard31 on January 12, 2017 at 10:32 PM
    We have a site where a user logs in and then we will embed the jotform.  Upon submission is there a way to get back the submission id immediately after the submission so we can update the database on our end to know what user submitted the form?  Then, when the user logs into our site we can pull up the submission they made on the jotform.  Is that doable?  We would like to have one user account within jot form, and have multiple users on our site, etc...

    The submission ID# field is available both in the submission email and in the View submission panel of the form as well.

    If you are familiar with Webhooks, you can use this method as well to trigger your custom push script to capture submission ID# field data.
