    You can add the unique iD to the autoresponder, in the email body, click on "Form Fields" and select the unique ID field. Please see:

    Unfortunately, you may not let the users see this id.

    JotForm cancelled this option, because it is not practical or possible.For example, if three people load the form it shows the ids ID1,ID2,ID3. Then the second person can leave the page, now this is broke the unique ID feature's design principle. People expect the ids to be sequential.

    We may explore another way to accomplish this in the future.

    Thank you
