    How do I get the 'submission_id' data to display in my JotForm "Submissions" section?

    Asked by rpjostform1 on June 28, 2017 at 10:22 PM

    How do I get the 'submission_id' data used in $POST to display in my JotForm "Submissions" section?

    DETAILS:

    1.  Submission is entered.

    2.  JotForm shows that I have a new submission associated with my form name.

    3.  I click on "SUBMISSIONS" and JotForm displays all of the submitted form's data.

    4.  In this section/page/display, I would like to have the unique 'submission_id' data displayed.  This would be the 'submission_id' that is sent via the Thank You page $_POST data.

    I need this data as a UNIQUE identifier to coordinate my data.  Obviously, I could create a new hidden field using the "Unique ID" widget.  But why do that if JotForm is already generating a unique id?

     

    Thanks.

    Hello rpjostform1,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you need the submission ID to be displayed in your form's submission page. Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. Please check the screenshot below on how to view "Submission ID":

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
