    Numbering submissions in email notifications

    Asked by pardop1 on June 09, 2015 at 09:28 AM

    I would like to know, as submissions come in, what number submission it is. This would be in the email I receive from the system as forms are submitted.

    Yes there is. You can use the Submission ID# in the Email Notification.

    this is not what I was looking for. I would like the numbers to be chronological so I have an idea of what number submission this is. How would I do that?

    You can include a unique ID widget in your form to allow for this:



    You can set the counter to whatever you would like to start and include a custom ID for each submission.  This automatically increments so each ID could be related to the submission count if you would like.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
