    Is it possible to display Unique ID on the form?

    Asked by martinbond on March 16, 2015 at 06:51 AM


    I want to implement the "Unique ID" widget onto my forms as a tracking method. I know there is some support already online regarding this widget but the answers etc are inconclusive. 

    Is it possible for the Respondent to see this unique this ID, this would be useful as if contact us post completion they can user their reference so we can search within our form database. I this is would be to be contained somewhere on the main body of the for as it's unlikely respondents will store the unique ID number if it only appears on the "Thank you" page. Whereas if it's within the main form then they can always save the confirmation email they receive post completion. 


    Please advise,

    I understand that you want to display the unique ID to be displayed on the form before submitting the form. Unfortunately, this is not possible and the unique ID is generated only after submitting the form. So, the field data can only be displayed on Thank you page or notification emails. You may setup an autoresponder so that the information along with the Unique ID can be sent to the form filling person. 

    Hope this information helps!
