    Submission ID

    Asked by kwoelfel on June 30, 2016 at 03:31 PM

    My form is working great. I do have one question about the Submission ID however. When my form is completed, the submission ID shows up in Excel report, but does not show up on my form that is sent to my email address.

     

    Is there a way to get the Submission ID to show up on the completed form? Also, is there a way to edit the submission ID spot so the numbers are not so long? Perhaps starting at 1, 2, 3, and so on?

    If I understood you correct you want that Submission ID is also shown inside of your email Notification. 

    If you want to display submission ID inside of your email Notification then you need to add it inside of Notification settings. {id} is the value of submission ID

    Unfortunately it is not possible to edit submission ID.

    However you can us Unique ID widget.

    Do you mean that you want that Submission ID is shown inside of your Email Notification that you receive when you form is submitted? 

    On screenshot I provided on my last post I have added value of Submission ID outside of the table. I did not include it inside of Notification subject. 

    You can also add it inside of the table by creating a new row.

    I have cloned your form and added Submission ID inside Notification table.

    I have then submitted my form and my email Notification looks like this. 

    If I did not understood you correctly, please provide us a screenshot of your email Notification and tell us where you want to add submission ID.
