    Can I set unique identifier for a certain field to prevent same record be submitted

    Asked by cgskillaccounts on July 27, 2016 at 01:38 PM

    To prevent duplication of data by setting unique identifier on certain field (matching) in stored database of previous submissions to prevent duplicated records. Google Forms can do it. Can Jotform do this? How?
