    Can JotForm system place a unique ID and also incorporate it in the pdf file?

    Asked by Yelena on June 10, 2014 at 01:40 PM
    Second question was:  when students submit their registration along with the essay, can JotForm system place a “stamp” or unique ID on both the registration and the essay to match those?  Also, can the same system generated ID be incorporated into the PDF file names?  This is really important for us.

    Here you have a guide on how you could accomplish that scenario:

    1. Add a Unique ID field following and customize it according to this guide

    Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions


    2.  Once you have this you can take any of these paths:

    -You could integrate with Dropbox and create a folder with UNIQUE ID

    -You can rather choose Google Drive and use the Unique ID field to create a subfolder for each student


    Do you need more help on this?  We will be happy to assist you!
