Need shorter request ID


I understand that the Id of each request can be displayed by writing [survey(“responseID”)], but that displays a long value.


Isn’t it possible to truncate all but the actual response id?

    Right, I’m trying to include the survey Id in an email sent after the form was submitted. So the subject line would be – Website Issue – [question(“value”), id=”10″] – ISSUE [survey(“response id”)], and the data it returns is:

    ISSUE 1449595650_5667130253b776.93610326

    Kinda long in a subject line.

      Hey There –

      You’re actually seeing the Session ID (which is the long string of numbers). The shorter Response ID isn’t actually created until the survey has been submitted and can therefore not be referenced in the survey because, technically, it doesn’t exist until the respondent is finished.

      I hope that clears it up a bit. Thanks.
