    Is it possible to use a field other than email for the session?

    Asked by cgarrity on February 29, 2012 at 12:05 PM

    Is it possible to use a field other than email for the session? For example a unique identifier that was provided to each respondent prior to filling out the form.

    In this case I would have three fields on the first form:

    Name

    E-mail

    UniqueId

    Then I would use {uniqueId} for the session= instead of the email field - should this work?

    I tried this, but when I clicked the link from the autorespond email I didn't see any of the data I had already entered.

    It should work, such as in these examples:

    http://www.jotform.com/form/20105908108?session=NotAnEmail

    Did you bother to read this user guide thoroughly? Did you know that you would need to have page breaks in the main form (not the "registration form) to save information entered?
