    If I understand you correctly, you wish to generate a special number on your form, and make sure that your user receives it over email when they submit your form.

    Yes, this can be achieved by using our Unique ID widget, as described in more detail within the following guide:


    To make sure that your Unique ID is correctly included within the autoresponder email your user will receive, you can try removing your existing autoresponder, and setting up a new one in its place:



    If Unique ID is still not working to your satisfaction after that, could you please provide some more information about how you are expecting the "ID number" to be created, or what is its designed function, and we'll be happy to look for possible ways to achieve your requirement. Thank you
