    Feature Request: Allow Multiple Unique IDs on One Form

    Asked by JeremyB on February 01, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    I have form I'm making for ordering tickets to an event.  I would like to be able to sell multiple tickets in one submission, but Jotform can only make one unique ID per submission, it seems.  I would like each ticket to have a unique ID.

    For example, the customer buys 3 tickets, and the thank you page shows 3 unique IDs, one for each ticket he bought.

    However, I can't get multiple unique ID fields on one form (the duplicate button actually duplicates the fields, but only the first unique ID field actually generates anything).  Any ideas for getting multiple IDs?

    Hello, As far as I know I'm not quite sure that this would be possible since our form's do not allow more than one Unique ID Field to be used per form. This would then leave you with the only way that it might work by replicating this across 3 different forms with 3 unique id fields but it may be unappealing since it would require 3 separate transactions. 

    Although, there may be a possibility of doing it together but it would most likely require the form's source code and some further customized programming if you know any or are willing to hire somone to do this for you since this would have to be done outside of jotform.

    I have some experience in Javascript so I could probably do it, but it isn't important enough to warrant the time needed.  It doesn't seem unreasonable or too difficult for Jotform to let us have multiple unique ID fields in a form, but the low demand may not justify the effort.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    I have created a feature request ticket and forwarded it to our Development Team. However, I can not provide any ETA on this.

    We will update this thread once we have any news.
