I would like to reference the login ID of the user to identify who is completing a survey. This is to work around the IP address being identical for every machine on a company subnet.
Any my ideas how to access userid or otherwise determine who is completing survey without asking for input?
Thanks again for an awesome tool!

Unfortunately it is not possible for a form to access environment variables for a particular machine.
A potential workaround is to embed you form in a webpage that will require user login after which the user id is set in the browser's session.
You can then pass this session in as a parameter value in the form URL, the value can then be placed in a hidden field on the form e.g.
where userid is the name of a field in the form where the value will be filled.
Please check out this guide about prepopulating form fields with URL parameters
