    Show the Unique ID

    Asked by labman3 on October 24, 2016 at 12:57 PM

    I'm building a maintenance request form but the unique id field says it won't be displayed on the form. I want every request to have a random alpha numeric or just numeric value.


    thank you

    You can only see the Unique ID after the user submit a submission. However, we also have another widget that you might find useful, here's the link:


    It automatically creates random value to your form every time the fom refreshes or when someone visit your form. 

    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, let us know. We'll be glad to help you.
