    Hello ramreet

    Each JotForm form has a unique URL (Internet address). All of those addresses either begin with "https://www.jotform.com/form/" or "http://form.jotform.com/". Therefore, in order to distinguish one form from another, a unique ID (identifier) is appended to the URL. For example https://www.jotform.com/form/0123456789 (http://form.jotform.com/0123456789) is a different form to https://www.jotform.com/form/1234567890 (http://form.jotform.com/1234567890).

    FYI, there are two other unique ID's associated with JotForm forms:

    Submission ID

    This is automatically generated each time someone uses a form and can be displayed on the Submissions page by clicking the icon indicated:

    This ID can also be included in email notifications and autoresponses during message composition with the use of the "{id}" tag.

    Custom Unique ID

    Please see this article in our user guide.

    Hopefully this explanation is clear. Thanks for asking and please feel free to enquire about other aspects of our forms.

    Hello rameet,

    The ID of your form is a long string of numbers at the end of the form URL.

    You can check the ID of each form going to your My Forms page, and clicking preview on the form you wish to look up then checking the URL in the child browser that will pop-up.

    If you have other questions and concerns, please do create a new post to let us know.

    Thanks and warm regards.
