    Looking to produce an event booking form which will take the money (paypal) and when delivering the confirmation email it will give them a booking reference number. How can I accomplish that?

    That puts it on the form OK but I need to provide my 'customer' with that number to use as an entry ticket so that on arrival we can compare (ticket was paid for)

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Good day! You can do that by adding Auto Responder to your form: Creating a Form Autoresponder then include the Unique ID to the output settings.

    Example Form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30762575623962
