Place Value in Submission Name

  1. Navigate to the Forms page and launch the Builder by selecting an existing form to edit or Create New.
  2. Find or add the field whose value will be in the submission name and select the gear icon to open the Field Settings modal.
  3. Toggle to the More menu and scroll to Place value in: and check the box next to Submission Name.BETA_Field Settings_Place Value In Submission Name.png
  4. Save and Publish to create a new submission.


If multiple fields have the Submission Name box checked, the submission name will reflect the order that the fields appear in the form. For example, if the first field is the Customer's Name and the second field is the date, the submission name would be John Smith 1/22/2024.
