    How can I create a Unique ID using the Unique ID feature but having it not change during an edit?

    Asked by mmarlowe on April 24, 2011 at 09:40 AM

    How can I create a Unique ID using the Unique ID feature but having it not change during an edit?

    When using the Unique ID feature, if someone edits later (since I am sending them an edit link), it creates a new Unique ID.. To me, this is not Unique.

    How to make a Unique ID that stays persistent across all edits?

    Hi,

    Thank you for bringing this up. You do have a point, that when a submission entry is edited, the unique ID assigned to it should not change. With that in mind, I have submitted a report ticket for this 'bug'. Our developers will have this taken care of as soon as they become available. We will notify you of updates regarding this issue via this thread so please stay tuned.

    Thank you for using Jotform.

    Neil

    Well - Not sure how to provide more details?  I went into a form, submitted it.  I edited that same form, using the edit link, and the Unique ID incremented... This is what was fixed, no? How can I/How do you want me to provide more details?
