    How to number form submissions in email

    Asked by Bambuza on September 08, 2014 at 09:11 PM

    I would like to know if there's any way to show in my email the number of the form subscription.

    Example: It was the second form ever filled by a customer in my website, so I would receive an email with the subject: "New Submission: #2 - {Company Name}"

    Is this possible?

    If thats not possible, is it possible to do this on the Google Apps integration?


    Thank You,


    Murilo Della Libera

    Thank you for the help! What I'm trying to figure out, though, is how to get the forms to show the number on its name. When I enter "My Forms" here on the JotForm page I can see how many have already been subscribed, but is there any way to show this number on the email notification or on the name of the File that appears in my Google Drive?


    Thanks Again.

    I believe you want to use the unique ID field:

    By default it contain sequential numbers, but you can customize it to have prefixes or other options if you like.

    Then you can include it in your email notification template:

    See this guide for setting up email notifications:


    Regarding you second question about integration with Google Drive, I believe this will solve your primary question. If you need more information on that though, let us know.
