    How do I generate unique order numbers in my form?

    Asked by riverside_csc on December 05, 2016 at 10:09 AM

    I am looking to put together a Purchase Order form for some merchandise my club are looking to sell to parents etc.


    I have previewed the form and filled in an example with details etc.


    But the "Buyer" doesn't seem to be provided with an order number?


    The confirmation email the admin gets is just a straight forward copy of the form?

    You can use Unique ID widget that will give you some random number that you can use as Order number:

    Or Random Value Generator Widget that will do the similar, but you have more options to adjust:

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you!
