    Asked by tourkick on May 06, 2011 at 01:45 PM
    Can you just make a Unique Submission ID for me?For example: -Allow me to start with a letter or number -Able to pick how many letters then how many numbers then how many letters then how many .... -Ability to limit ID's entire length (e.g. 6 characters max) -Ability to be unique to just that form or to all of my JotForm forms for each user account or unique to ALL users' accountsI'd REALLY appreciate it. Thanks. :)

    Hi Tourkick,

    You can format your own Id by using the properties dialogue.  First add a prefix with the letters you want.  Then use number padding to set its max length.  For example the following properties will begin submitting with the ID: AAA000051

     

    Hope this is a bit clearer,

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Daniel, thank you for the reply. I didn't realize you had part of the requested functionality already built-in. :) However, auto-increment ID is different than random ID, correct? Is a random unique ID possible in addition to your already-in-place auto-increment unique ID?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi, I followed your instructions above, but when I go to my Excel file on Google Drive, it does not appear that the new autonumber is populating.  Am I missing a step?

    @mustluvd0gs

    Do make sure the UniqueID is indeed setup properly. First by checking the Submissions' Page of your form is recieving this data. You can also try removing the integration and re-trying to integrate the form to your Google Spreadsheet Integration.

    In any case, kindly create a new thread in the forum if you need further assistance, as we are working on a one issue per thread basis. Thank you.
