I wonder whether it is possible to query the current ObjectId of the survey entry and make it visible in the form.

I want to ensure that the user can see an individual ID for his entry.

Depends how user-friendly you want it to be. Assuming you're using S123 Connect, you can use the uuid() function under calculation. Or you can concatenate a number of fields together (e.g. components of date/time). This post covers both of these options


Note from the post:
Technically, a handmade Ticket Number is not guaranteed to be unique although in practice, if you build it correctly, it will do the job just fine.

Is this for a new survey submission? If so, I'm pretty sure the answer is no because the ID isn't created until you hit submit

Many thanks for the answer. Yes, I was thinking of a new survey submssion, but it is logical that this cannot work. You're right.

Is there any other idea how I can get a unique ID for a new submission?

Thank you for the answer and the reference to the post with the different options. For me, the handmade ticket number option is completely sufficient. It works fine.
