Unique application form number on excel output

    Dear Jotform,


    I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am organising a conference where we are expecting to received around 500 applications, which each have a 500 word essay. 


    The problem is that these essays need to be graded anonymously, and we therefore need to use the unique application number as a reference rather than their names / any other data that might reveal their identity. 


    The problem is that when I download all the applications to a spreadsheet, the unique application number does not show up in any of the columns. So my question is: Is there any way to make it do that, and if so, how is it done?


    Thank you very much for your help in advance!

    You can set the submission ID to show up in the reports by following the steps below:

    1. Open the submissions page of your form and click on the Gear icon

    2. Check the ID option to display the ID

    You can also add a custom Unique ID to your form that will not be displayed to your customers but will show up to your reports and submissions page. Here is a guide on how to add custom unique IDs: Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions
