    Adding unique ID in the "Thank you" for the submitter

    Asked by abr28 on April 18, 2016 at 08:12 AM

    I need to design an anonymous form which tells the submitter a unique ID (a counter would do) after they submit. I cannot use emails since I must not ask for their email.

    I know of the "Unique ID" widget which allows me to track the submissions. Is there a way to add it to the "thank you" message so that the submitte sees it? If not, is there any way I can achieve the above?

    Yes. It is possible to have a unique ID for each submission and display it on the Thank you page by using the Unique ID widget on your JotForm.

    Please refer to the guide below that can help you with the Unique ID widget on your JotForms. 


    You can display the Unique ID on the Thank you page by changing the Thank you message to add the Unique ID form field.

    Hope this information helps! If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks. I actually had discovered how to do it myself minutes after I asked the question, but I couldn't find this thread to reply to it so I can let you know ...
