    Showing up Unique ID value on the form

    Asked by vicheca on June 12, 2013 at 03:33 PM

    Hi, I wanna see the unique ID when I'm filling my form, after I use the source code I cant modify directly in the same field, I copied all the code in notepad and modified, but now how can I put in my JoitForm to see the unique ID. In another hand, can I use the Unique ID to search the form and add informtion?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I wanna see the unique ID when I'm filling my form, after I use the source code I cant modify directly in the same field, I copied all the code in notepad and modified, but now how can I put in my JoitForm to see the unique ID.

    This is not possible to show the Unique ID value on the form due to the fact that the ID is being generated by the server upon submission. However, you can show the Unique ID value on the form Thank You Page and Email Alert by using field {tag}.

    Also, you can modify the form source code and use it, but you can not put the modified code to our form builder.

    In another hand, can I use the Unique ID to search the form and add informtion?

    Yes, you can run the search queries and modify existing submissions. There is a search bar and edit icon on the form Submissions page.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this. We will be happy to help.
