Unique form submission IDSOLVE

What are the best options for capturing a unique ID for each form submission of HubSpot hosted forms?
Our reporting and sales hand-off process relies on having the ability to match up each individual submission (i.e. RFQ 00001, RFQ 00002, etc.)
We would need this form submission ID number included in our internal email notification and in the form submissions export data.
I'm thinking a hidden form field could work, just not sure how to get the auto-generated value.

Don't worry, you are not alone in using a different CRM. Personally I have done a lot of work with Hubspot Marketing and Salesforce and it is very common to find this scenario of automation platfom and CRM platform being separate. The submission GUID would work but it isn't created until after the submission happens. So what your API would need to do is grab the submission ID after the submission from a specific form and then share that value with your CRM.
Hubspot does have some good API documentation. Like you I know enough to help guide what they can do, but not enough to code it and work with developers as well. What I would recommend they look into is the Contact and Form APIs because there should be a way to pull this information after the submission and trigger a retrieval of the data you are looking for.
