    Email confirmation of submitted form AND how the form can generate a unique reference number for a reference field

    Asked by Sunil Kalia  on March 11, 2014 at 01:27 PM

    Hi - I am looking to use your form builder to deploy a form into site produced using Moonfruit site builder.

     

    I am not a developer -  I am creating a basic website for a chauffering client of mine who needs his customers to book pickups.

     

    So just a basic form.

     

    When the customer completes the form, the form should generate a (unique) booking reference number and when the customer submits it sends a copy of the booking back to them as well as the chauffer company.

    Thanks

    Sunil
