    Unique ID is not being displayed in submission Emails

    Asked by DennisKnox on March 11, 2016 at 12:43 PM


    I just added the widget Unique ID to my form.

    The widget does not appear in the dropdown, so I am typing {uniqueid} in my email subject line but I get no ID added to the email received.

    Please advise.

    Hello Dennis,

    I did check your last edited form and found that the name of the "Unique ID" widget is {input9}. This is the tag you have to add where ever you need to display unique ID in your email alert. Please check the screenshot below:


    I have fixed this issue in your form and the unique ID will be displayed correctly in the submission emails subject line.

    The reason why the unique ID list is not coming up in the email alert is because, you do not have added any label for unique ID. 

    Thank you!
