    Add prefix in unique value

    Asked by Holidea on January 22, 2016 at 08:08 AM


    Thank you for your answer. And I have an other problem:)

    I would like to put in one form a unique id but whit to different prefix.

    Ex. ther is a field with 2 options (the name is S.I. categ - in my form). If I make the "KIWA" imput I would like the unique id has a prefix "KIW";

    if the field S.I. categ is "PARTY" - the unique id has to start with "PAR" prefix.

    I hope you understand me:)

    Thank you

    I understand that you want to have the first 3 characters of the option in your Unique ID. This may be achieved by assigning calculation values to the radio buttons.

    Then setup a condition to fill the calculation value to another Text box which can be used in Unique ID.

    Option1 is the textbox field ID that I have used on my form. 

    Following is the email being received with Unique ID.

    Please see the form provided below.


    You may clone the form to your account to see how the condition is set.

    Hope this information helps! Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
