    Unique ID widget generates the number based on autoincrement for every time the JotForm is submitted. This is unique but cannot be random. The generated number can be just a number or you can prefix some characters as you need.

    I am not sure though, but I think linkshare should accept the number as long as it has no special characters.

    Okay. I see that you were asking about submission ID generated when the JotForm is submitted but not unique ID widget while I answer your other thread. I've changed the title of the thread now to avoid confusion.

    To answer this question, it is Yes. The submission ID is unique for each submission and this ID is available to pass on to the Thank you page through POST.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions.
