    Is there a way to attach a number to each form that is emailed to me, if so how?

    Asked by stakerrr on July 21, 2014 at 03:46 PM

    For instance, when you buy something you are emailed a confirmation number. I want where it says "Notifier 2" and "New submission: Contact Form with Blue Envelope" in the images I attached to have a number. But I want to have some kind of code or tool that gives a unique number to each form that is submitted. So say you submitted a form to me, again where it says "Notifier 2" and "New submission: Contact Form with Blue Envelope" it would now say "1". And then someone else sends me a form it will say "2" for them in my email. I don't want the person submitting the form to have to do anything I want it to be completely automatic. I hope there is a way to do this. Thanks for any and all help, have a nice day!

    You can do so by adding a unique ID field to your form.  You can do so by following this guide:


    Then include that field where ever you would like in the email submission.


    Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
