    Follow-up on unique id - any way to display it to the respondent?

    Asked by Dawn Weeks  on February 20, 2014 at 01:28 PM

    Is there any way to display the unique id that is generated to the respondent?  Can it be copied into a display field or is there any way to "unhide" it?


    Thanks much!  From what I've seen, this is an incredibly powerful survey builder - I am hoping I can get this one issue understood and resolved!!

    From my previous tests Unique ID remains hidden in the form.

    But there is a workaround, that is to insert Unique ID field in the thank you message, so the user can have access to it.

    Please go to "Thank you"> Thank you message:

    And then click "submission ID" and edit the Thank you message if you wish.Click finish:


    Or you can create an auto-responder email and insert Unique ID field so that user receives both Unique ID and submitted information.

    Kindly let us know if you need further assistance.
