    I can't get the value of the Unique ID to be converted to a QR code, how can I do it? I am using the "dynamic QR code" widget

    Hello Dante,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. Please note that the Unique ID widget's value is only visible on the Reports and Submissions; since it cannot be seen by the respondents on the form, its value cannot be converted into a QR code.

    On the other hand, similar to Unique ID, you can use the Random Value Generator widget, which values can be converted into a QR code via another widget called Dynamic QR Code; let me show you how:

    1. Click on the + Add Form Element button, then go to the Widgets tab.
    2. Search for Random Value Generator, then add it to the form.
    3. Configure the Random Value Generator: 1651901621_627604b554dde_RVG.gif
    4. Character - for changing the number of characters.
    5. Allowed Characters - for changing the character types.
    6. Run In The Background - If set to Yes, will hide the widget.
    7. Rename the Random Value Generator.
    8. From the same Widgets tab, add the Dynamic QR Code to the form.
    9. Type the Random Value Generator's new name into the Field Label to Encode.1651901924_627605e45f65c_QR Code.gif

    But this may be different from your idea; perhaps, you can share with us what you're trying to achieve? So we can help you with the form settings.
