    The submission ID is generated in random, so it's not possible. However, you can add a unique ID widget which automatically increments everytime a submission is made on your form. Please check out this guide to know more about the said widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/79-How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Just to confirm, your Prefix sequence would be /2017/P and your incrementing value starts with a single digit. If so, here is a sample setting for the unique ID widget: 

    1508083832unique_ID_-_settings_-_prefix.

    What I did here was that I added the Unique ID widget, clicked it and did the following steps:

    1) Click on Properties button
    2) Type the Unique ID prefix
    3) Scrolled down and saved the settings by clicking the save button

    If you need assistance, please let us know of the specific form that you are working on by providing us the link or the ID of said form.

    Thanks.
