    Asked by traveldiunsa on March 04, 2016 at 12:03 AM

    Hello, I want to implement Unique ID or Random Value Generator widget to apper only after submited form, maybe in the thank you message. Can this be achieved?

    Also this ID´s and number are stored on each submission right?

    The purpose of this is to make a sweepstake with all completed forms numbers or ID´s

    If you want to show them only on your Thank you page it is possible with Jotform. I will show you how to do this step by step.

    Here is how to do this:

    1) Click on Thank you.

    2) Click on form fields and choose your Unique ID field and widget field. At that time when used submit the form. They can see their A Random Unique Value and unique ID on thank you page.

    In addition to that, you can hide both of them on your form. At that time your customers will not able to see them on form.

    I see that the unique Id is already hidden field. If you want to hide your Random Value Generator widget you can hide it as you see below:

    I've also added label on your cloned form. At that time, you can see the field tag easily while you are adding it on your thank you page.

    You need to hide the label by adding the code below:

    #label_95 {

    visibility : hidden !important


    Here is how it works:
