    I need to add the Analytics Person_ID variable to the form so as I identify the person that answered it.

    If you need to add it as a simple field, yes, you can add it to your form. You can add any field and use it as Analytics Person_ID (if I understood you completely). For example:

    You can use Unique ID widget as well if it helps: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement

    If you have any further questions please let us know.
    Thank you!

    Not really, what I got is a list of ids specifically for each submission, so every person receives personalized link with it's id. Example:

    surveylink.com/?PERSON_ID=2184641

    And what I need is to get the response with this id, but the person cannot fill this in a field.

    I do this in surveymonkey with custom variables and when I export the submissions I get the id related with the form response.

    Thank you for the additional explanation and example.

    What you could do is something similar to the save and continue that allows you to use the form link to create a unique session id but, it's actually more intended for the whole form instead of a single field instead.

    Alternatively, another idea would be to combine the Unique ID widget with a calculation widget to generate a unique person id to output and control.

    Thank you for the ideas, but as we already have the id assigned we cannot calculate them again :(

    I must agree with my colleague Kade, you can calculate that unique field and append to the URL, but since you have them prepared I'm not sure how to include them in the form and append those properly so they will be for the proper user.

    If there is any chance to do it by calculations please let us know we can assist you with that.

    Thank you!
