    You can create unique IDs on each form submitted. These fields are hidden on the form itself. 

    Please review this User Guide article and have a think if this feature is suitable in your case.

    I am afraid that's not possible. A unique ID can only be taken if the form was successfully submitted. Displaying it in an un-submitted (yet) form will defeat its purpose.

    The good news is that you can display the unique ID assigned to a submitted form in its Thank You message or in an autoresponder sent to the user.

    If you need further information on that, just hit us up.
