    Is there any way to create a custom submission ID, or a sequencial number generator per form submitted?

    you could do that

    It is explained in this article from Jotform HELP 



    You could find it on your Jotform main screen here

    in widgets just type unique and it would show up !


    You can also customize this custom ID  number. As it is shown on the first picture pointing by red arrow up.

    Normally, it will work its way up from the default value, but if you need to customize this id,  Jotform  added three properties for this tool to make it easier for you. It goes like Index Prefix and Number for example

    #ID3213 or    CID-1234

    This is how the ID  looks on  the form


    It `s hidden by default

    1 - Its the Unique ID field

    2 - The properties Icon just for this ID
