Possibility to export data with IDs instead of labels

    Currently Jotform exports the data with the associated data labels.  I would like the option to export the data IDs.  My reason for this is simple.  After I export the data, I run it through a data scrubbing process that then goes into my database.  I do a lookup on my Product names between the Jotform export and my database.  If I change the label of a product whatsoever, my lookups break.

    I imagine that many Jotform customers are doing something similar - running the exported data into another orders spreadsheet or database.  The option to export the data associated with static IDs (rather than labels) is consistent with good database practices.  Food for thought.
