How can I use the timestamp (like 201203191500) as the submission ID, or as a field, in my form?

    I want to integrate to drop box, and have the timestamp be the filename in dropbox, so it has some meaning (rther than the submission iD, which has no meaning to me...)

    OR: how can I get the submission ID into the spreadsheet, so I can generate durable URLs to uploaded images?

    Thanks!

    Hello, unfortunately to my knowledge I think it is only dropbox that will accept the actual submission id as of right now via the DB Integration Manager in the Submissions Control Panel.

     

    However, you could do something similar to label it in Google Spreadsheets if you wanted to go that route using a Unique ID.

     

    It may be possible to do something further but you would have to use customized programming and probably the form's source to get it to gather and post data to google along with getting google spreadsheets to accept it.

    I would like to add that we do have links to the uploads on the Google Spreadsheets.

    Thank you.
