    Can we have some reference numbers set up on our jotform and have it set to start from specific number?

    Asked by BOALUK on February 25, 2015 at 11:18 AM


    If we would like the reference numbers to start from a certain number i.e. 2000 to match our system is this possible?

    Many Thanks

    That is understandable Hannah, but it would not be possible to change the submission ID at this time.

    We do have however create a Unique ID widget that would allow you to set any format that you have in your own system and allow you to add up from a certain number.

    For example, if the reference numbers in your system are starting with 2000 you can set it up to start from that number as well and it would go up by one per each new submission made.

    It will also allow you to add any text in front of after if needed.

    Would that work for you Hannah?
