Where can I locate the {SAVEDID} for my participants?

Hi all, my participants are given a completion code at the end of a survey generated via {SAVEDID}.

Where can I access these codes? As the SAVEDID is not a survey question per se, it is not included in the exported responses, and the codes do not correspond with the ID in the main survey responses menu. Hopefully this is just a menu item that I haven't located, but any advice would be appreciated.

Best, Gerard

Is there any reason for not including infos like LimeSurvey version?

We don't know how the survey is generating a completion code via SAVEID. So your question seems to be about where to find the SAVEID code inside the responses, right?


The variable SaveID can be found in the responses labeled as "id".

Hi, thanks for the response. I am using Limesurvey Version 3.27.32

The SAVEDID is included as part of the End Message text element, rather than as a question - specifically as {sum(11111,SAVDID)}.

So if I understand you correctly - if a participant received the SAVEDID code 11511, then their response ID would be 400, by subtracting my starting counter value?

You wrote SAVDID. A mistype? Or a different variable inside your survey?

SAVEDID is the id assigned to a particular submission.
If your survey adds 11111 to SAVEDID and present that as the code to your respondents, you have to subtract 11111 from that code to get the ID which can be found in the responses.

Next time, it is probably best to create your code within a hidden Equation type question and then you just show the content of this equation type question field. This way you would have the code saved into your database and could consult it without any need to calculate anything.
