    I would like to apologize, I'm afraid it would not be possible to show the Unique ID widget on the form.

    May we know why do you need to have it shown on the form so we can try to check if there are any other workaround that will give you the same result? You might also want to check Submission Counter widget and Random Value Generator widget.

    Thank you.

    Please try using the Random Value Generator widget.

    You need to add the widget field in the notification email if it is not currently showing.
