    You can use the Unique ID widget to generate a unique id number data every time your form is submitted.

    Check this user guide: How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    You can use this as your form unique number field.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    No the Unique ID is not visible to clients. You can see the value in the editor. Or on the submissions page:

    Hello Tai123,

    Unfortunately no. "Unique ID" is generated only after the form is submitted and that is the reason why it cannot be displayed in the form. Please note that you can show the value of "Unique Id" widget in thank you message which is displayed to user after the form is submitted. Please check the screenshot below on how to show unique ID in thank you message:

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
