    One of the dropdown fields in the form is called "Choose level" and the option are CategoryA, CategoryB, CategoryC and CategoryD. Can jotfrom generate a submission ID which is based on a userlevel+ Entries so far, so CatD-001, CatA-002, CatC-003, CatC-004 etc or better yet, User level + Entries so far in the specific level, for eg, CatA-001, CatA-002, CatB-001

    If I understand you properly, you would like to be able to create and ID based on the selection of the form. If 4 users selected Cat A the ID would be CATA1 to CATA4. If a 10 users selected Cat B. The ID would be CATB1- to CATB10.

    At the moment this is not possible. As you saw, the UNIQUE ID widget enables you to create an ID with PREFIX and suffix. This counter will automatically increase when a form is submitted. It will not check how the form was filled.
