    What submission number are you referring to? The amount of submissions you receive or the amount that your form allows? Or? Please explain more about this so we can assist you better.

    Sorry, posted it in the late night.

    Basically, we provide the submission number generated {id} as the booking reference but it being very large number would be difficult for our customers to refer it to us via phone.

    So just wanted to check if there is any possiblities to display only the last 4 digits.

    I'm afraid that reference number is used by the core system to manage your submissions -

    I would suggest adding the unique ID field into your form.

    It auto-increments with every form submission-  you can customize as much as you want, including making the numbers smaller (easier to reference).      

    The field is also hidden, and its not editable by form users, so it will keep the integrity of your submission references:

    Please let us know if this helps.
