    How to add a random number?

    Asked by a1mirrorsltd on May 03, 2010 at 10:40 AM


    We receive our enquiries via Jot Form and we were wondering if there is a way to get the form to generate a random number, which would then use as a unique quote reference when getting back to the customer?


    If anyone has any advice/information it would really, really help!

    Add {id} to subject or body of the email.

    Hey, thanks for that!

    Could you tell me how add {id} to the subject line because when I go to edit the subject line on the email, it says


    New Submission: {form_title} {id}


    Many thanks!

    That should do it. So when you make a test submission do you receive the id in the email subject?
