    Asked by Holidea on May 04, 2016 at 06:02 AM


    I need to have to times the unique id in the form submission, because I want to appear it two times when I costumize PDF. I made a condition to appear in an other field, what I hide, when is full the unique id field but it does not appear in the hide field.

    Unfortunately you cannot duplicate or copy the Unique ID field value to another field.

    The Unique ID field is restricted and have such property that prevent it from being duplicated within the form.

    What you can do instead as an alternative is to create your own custom Unique ID data (not using the Unique ID field). Then, you can duplicate this custon unique id code on the form.

    Here is an example form https://form.jotform.com/61242758156963


    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
