How do I display Unique ID on the actual survey?

    Hello, I would like my respondents to see what unique ID they have been given as they will need it for reference in the future. Is this possible through your system? Right now, it is hidden when they are filling out the survey. 


    I see that many others have asked this question in the past with no response. I would really appreciate a response as this is one of the reasons I have chosen your product.

    The Unique ID field is not visible on the form itself but can be seen in the Email, in the Thank You page and in the form submission data. This is by design.

    If you want the respondents to be able to see and know the Unique ID they'd been assigned, you can do it by:

    #1 Adding an Autoresponder Email (confirmation email) on the form.The respondents then should be able to see it in the message when they get the confirmation email. 

    #2 Add the Unique ID field in the Thank You page of the form.


    If what you require is to have the unique id data shown already on the form when the respondents load/open the form, then you should not use the Unique ID field.

    You can instead use another field or method that will add the unique id data on the form that is immediately visible.

    I suggest checking the Random Value Generator widget. You can use it as an alternative to the Unique ID field to have unique data value in the form. 

    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
