    Unique Id

    Asked by 2ezy on September 10, 2012 at 10:40 PM

    How do I get the unique id to show in the subject line of the emails that get sent out. I realize that adding {id}

    puts some big long number in but I want to start from 0.

    You have to use your unique id variable for it to work. {id} refers to the submissions ID that's why it gives you a long string of numbers (unless your unique ID label is "ID"). To get your unique ID variable, simply right click your unique ID field and click on "Show Properties" after that copy the variable under name. Example: {uniqueid}

    Let us know if I've missed something. Thanks!
