    Send Post Data: Can I set the field id so that I know exactly what I am receiving on my server end?

    Asked by kalenjian on August 16, 2011 at 01:42 PM

    Can I set the "field id" so that I know exactly what I am receiving on my server end? Right now, I have to either look at the source of the form or monitor from my server end to see the exact ids of the fields.

    Unfortunately, no, you cannot set field id's. The form builder automatically assigns id's for the fields so as to avoid complications arising from duplicate id's.

    You may try using the function print_r($_POST); to display id's all at once.

    Hope you find this useful. Thank you for using JotForm!
