    Hi,

    For my form, I would like to be able to use conditional logic on the unique IDs, but I don't think it's possible.

    For example, some of our customers will have a purchase order that they will be referencing and some won't.  If someone fills in that they have a purchase order, then I don't want to give them a new reference number.  Their purchase order number will end up being their reference number.

    Can I hide the unique number if they enter their own purchase order number?

    Thanks,

    Erin

    Unfortunately, the Unique ID widget that you're using on your form cannot be shown in the form, it can be only hidden. 

    I would suggest you to use another widget, the Random Value Generator is a good option and it can be handled with conditions and calculations as well: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/random_value_generator
