    Hello mcdesigns,

    Yes it is possible to achieve this. You can take advantage of our "Unique ID" field. Here is a guide which should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/79-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    Please be noted that "Unique ID" field is now moved from "Power Tools" to the "Widget" section. You need to search "Unique ID" in the widget and add it in your form:

    Adding a "Unique ID" in your form will generate a unique ID for every form submission and you can add this field in your form's notification alert. This will ensure that your clients will get a unique reference number for every form submissions.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
