    How to assign an incident number to new submissions?

    Asked by LNLJNorman on January 29, 2015 at 04:43 PM

    Hello! I am new to JotForm and will be utilizing this service for my firm, small business and neighborhood association. Can you please tell me if JotForm has the capability to assign a form or report number to a submission? For example, we use a form to capture incident that occur at our firm. I would like the system to automatically assign an incident number to new submissions. Is this possible? Thank you!

    Thank you for your interest in using JotForm. I understand that you want to know if ID is assigned for forms and its submissions. An id is automatically assigned to the form and each of its submissions. The form ID is displayed on the URL of the JotForm.

    The submission ID can be displayed from the form submissions view.

    If you want to have a custom incident number with incrementing, you may take a look at our Unique ID widget. If you are looking for something different, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
