    Is there a way to have the unique ID go up when someone does an edit to their original submission and then submits the form again? I need a way to have the "edits" become a unique form entry. Thanks!

    Please note that editing submission will not create a new entry. It just updates the existing submission. So the unique ID will not increment or change on the edited submission.

    What we could do is to forward this as a feature request to our back end team to check, though we will not be able to provide a time frame or assurance if this can be implemented.

    If you could submit as a feature request, that would be great.  I know not everyone would want this, but if users could be given the option to have "edits" become new submissions or be left as a pure edit to the original submission, that would serve both potential needs.  Thank you!
