    How can I change the PDF file name to include submission ID?

    Asked by WMMGA on February 17, 2015 at 08:05 PM

    Currently the PDF file name sent with each submission is made up of the submitter's email address.  I would like to add to it the submission ID as well.  Where do I configure that?

    Hello WMMGA,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You can set the "Submission folder name" as "Custom" and then configure add {id} tag to include submission id. You can also add any other field name tag (like email) which you want to include in the name. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    This is what I'm trying to do at the moment - be able to set a Custom folder name format i.e. {date} - {submitter} - {school} - {choice}. Has this functionality been removed?..

    I'd love the old functionality back, but this concatenate method does the job in a round about way: https://www.jotform.com/answers/780512-How-to-concatenate-value-of-two-fields-and-use-it-as-dropbox-folder#1
