    Submission ID is the unique identifier of each submission and is something our system assigns to your submissions. As such it is not possible to change it.

    You could alternatively add a text input with the default value, that is hidden on your form.

    The default value could then be set to the project name and you can place it at any position - probably above all the other fields.

    Do let us know if that is what you had in mind or if something like that would not work for you by some chance.
