    Is it possible to add a unique reference ID into a form

    Asked by paulsimo0 on September 17, 2014 at 11:43 AM

    Would it be possible to add a unique reference ID into a form, so that when I view the submitted forms, all the different submitted forms display their own unique reference ID in the results and also in the download excel file.

    If so, could you give me some guidance on how to achieve this.

    Thank you.
