    How can I customize the submission ID?

    Asked by OmnitracsMarComm on May 11, 2017 at 10:12 AM

    I’m hoping you get this! Thank you for your help with turning job numbers on, it went very smoothly. But, the job number the form assigns is really long. Any way to shorten it, and also to determine the starting number?


    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Katie,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to customize the submission ID, as they are generated automatically. However, we do have a widget that you can perhaps use as a Unique ID instead of the submission ID. You can customize this number. Here's the link to use the widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement 

    Please follow this guide on How to Add a Widget to your Form? You can also check out our guide here on How to Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions?

    If you have any questions or issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.
