    Custom Unique ID

    Asked by AndyFA on May 27, 2010 at 05:58 AM
    It would be really useful for us to add our own ID in this area. We want to start getting our users to submit Design Briefs to us using this form.

    With our current system (done by paper) we are allocating a Job Number to each brief and are currently at something like Job 6198. It would be really useful if, when we start using JotForm, we could automatically start from our latest job number and seamlessly integrate it into our system.

    Many thanks, JotForm is an excellent product.

    JotForm can assign an ID to each submission. But you cannot customize these numbers. To see them add {id} to the emails or enable "ID" fields on the settings button on Submissions page.

    Thanks for the reply, looks like the unique ID is not really of much use to us in this case then. we need something smaller and incremental.
