    Yes, you can use the unique submissions ID by adding {id} tag on your email notification.

    Or you can add Unique ID widget to your form. http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement

    This auto-increment numbers with prefix and suffix base on your setup.

    Hope this helps!

    Is there any way to show Unique ID? The preferences in show/hide field does not seem to work.
