    How to display the submission ID on the Thank You Page?

    Asked by Tableaux on August 04, 2016 at 10:06 AM

    Is it possible to display the unique form ID on the thank you page?

    We would like to use the form id as a reference for the form a visitor submits. Being able to show that form ID in the thank you page would be great. We have set it up so they get an email copy of what they submitted and it has the form id, but it would be great to be able to show it on the thank you page as well.

    You can do that by adding the form ID manually to the Thank You wizard. Here's how:

    1. In the Form Builder, click the Thank You button.

    2. In the Thank You wizard, you can add the form ID manually in the Thank you page. Here's a screen animation:

    3. You can find the form ID in the URL or in the Publish wizard.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Perhaps I did not explain correctly.

    Every form has a unique id generated when one is completed. We use that unique "id" in the email notifications so that when we get an email notification it appears in the subject line as "Re: {form_title} {id}". That allows us to quickly separate and identify each submission.

    I'd like to embed that unique {id} in the thank you page of each form submitted if possible.

    Simply add the Submission ID tag in the thank you email to get that. You can manually add {id} in the area or click to add from the Form Fields dropdown:
