Wondering about the nature of submission / ID tokens...Are they alphanumeric?  Is there somewhere I can look to see their exact composition? I have grubbed around google and the website (user & developer) and can’t find anything detailed.


I am passing the submission token ID further downstream in an S3 filename which represents the form’s attachment file and want to ensure there are no hyphens used since I am parsing based on those.  Thanks in advance.

Hi @Vince Fulco. Welcome to the Typeform Community! :hugging:


The token is generated on submission start (first interaction w form IIRC). It's basically a random 32 characters sha256 encoded string (yeah, hexadecimal). 


Let me know if you have any further questions and we'll be happy to help! 

Can I build some logic based on the tokens? I will send a survey to my client’s employees and i would like to know how to deal with identifying them based on tokens

Hi @PatrykNextMove This might be possible - do you mind sharing a bit more about how the tokens are formatted and what kind of logic you’re looking for?
