    Can you limit the characters of the {id}

    Asked by rockstaridea on October 22, 2012 at 07:07 PM

    Currently the form generates  unqiue {id} that is 18 characters long.  Is there a way to limi the unique id to be 8 characters long?  It throws off our whole system.

    Are you referring to the form ID? If yes, we are sorry but that's how it works. You can either use a custom URL;

    1. Setup and Embed

    2. Embed Form

    3. Click on "Custom URL" in wrench icon

    4. Enter your custom url name

    Using custom domain might also help:https://www.jotform.com/help/144-How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform

    Thanks and please let us know for questions.
