    Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions

    Asked by metehan711 on November 26, 2013 at 07:23 AM

    Hi everyone,

    When I recieve a notification mail, I want to see in the "subject" of the mail increasing numbers after each submission that i recieve. I guess I can explain it better with this example:


    For the 1st person who fills the form it must say in the subject of the notification mail:

    From: blahblah

    To: Me@example.com

    Subject: [1] - or (1) or whatever. 


    For the second one:

    From: blahblah

    To: Me@example.com

    Subject: [2] - or (2) or whatever. 


    ...55th one:

    From: blahblah

    To: Me@example.com

    Subject: [55]  - or (55) or whatever. 


    What is the fonction or code for this? Thank you...
