    Hi there,

    The Unique ID is a hidden field which can not be displayed to end users while they
    are still in the process of filling out the form. The unique id is generated after
    the data is submitted. It acts as a unique key for every valid submission.

    What you can do is to include it in the autoresponder sent out to user after
    submitting the form.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi deivid151b,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Mliz is right, you cannot show the Unique ID while filling out the form. But you can include it in your Thank You page. I've included some illustrations and hope this helps.

    First, you should know the specified name for your field. To do this, under "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Email Alerts", then "Notifications".


    You will see a list of you form's field names.

    After obtaining the ID name, return to your form builder and from the "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Thank You"



    Click "Thank You message" and "Next".


    Then do the necessary changes such as your message to your customers and of course their ID 


    If you have other problems, please feel free to contact us again.
