    Hi there,

    The Unique ID is a hidden field which can not be set visible to end users when
    they are still in the process of filling out the form. The purpose of this field is
    to serve as unique key for every valid submission. This means that it is only
    generated once the user has submitted the data using the form.

    For this reason the id can not be displayed or visible to visitors.

    You can find unique id's for each submisssion entry in the form's submissions page.

    Hope this information clarifies the limitation on the unique id field.

    Best Regards,
    Mliz
