    Hi

     

    I found it "Unique ID".

    Is there any way that the Field Type can be included in the Properties so we know what Field was used originally?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes the Unique ID widget allows you to create an auto increment value. Here's a guide that might also help: https://www.jotform.com/help/79-How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions 

    I'm not sure what you meant by this:

    "Is there any way that the Field Type can be included in the Properties so we know what Field was used originally?"

    Do you wish to use the "Unique ID" widget in the "Unique Question" option in the Preferences?

     

    It's not possible to use that there and also the Unique ID widget is not visible on the users end. If you could provide us more details of what you would like to accomplish here, that would help us better. 

    We'll wait for your response.
