    How do I change the ID or NAME of a field that I build using the JotForm IDE? As a developer, I am trying to match up data from my database back into the form using field names. If I could control what the field ID's are then I can match them up dynamically at run time. This is really the ONLY shortfall I am facing with JotForms. Please help!

    Hello robertswalker,

    It is not possible to change the field id. They are generated automatically and are mapped with our JotForm database.

    Even if you download your form's source code and change the field ids, you form will not work and the submission records will not be saved in JotForm database.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Thank you!
