    You can add a Unique ID widget to your form, please refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/79-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    And then you can generate the barcode using this online generator

    In your autoresponder you will need to edit the HTML source (click on the HTML button at the top of the editor) and add the barcode image like this:

    <img src='//www.barcodesinc.com/generator/image.php?code={uniqueID}&style=453&type=C128B&width=200&height=100&xres=2&font=4' alt='Barcode' />

    In order to know the name of the field that contains the Unique ID (to build the URL of the barcode picture), you need to right-click the Unique ID widget and then click on "show properties".

    Please let us know if this helps.

    Best Regards.
