    How autogenerated numbers in my form will increase for the next submissions?

    Asked by sachinomg on January 30, 2017 at 09:06 AM



    My form is https://form.jotform.me/63393478179471


    I have already 200+ submissions in this form.

    Now new registration are closed.



    I am working on submissions.

    I want to generate "Exam Seat No." for all submissions.

    Seat No. will start from 1001 for first submission. It should auto increase for next submissions. 


    Please guide.




    (I know about unique id.. but its not working for already submitted records. Its working for new submission.)

    First of all, I've checked your account and I've seen that you're out of the submission limit. Your submission limit will be reset on the 1st day of the next month.

    You can consider buying a Storage plan for $5 per month in order to receive limitless submissions or you can consider waiting until the next month. Please find the screenshot below in order to check the Storage plan details:

    Related to your question: I've checked your form and cloned it on my side in order to test it. 

    The only solution seems to use the Unique ID widget. Because it can start from 1000 and can increase one by one for each submission you will receive.

    Also, whatever you can add to your form will consider the new submissions. It is not possible to consider the old submissions.

    If you need further clarification, please let us know.

    Thank you.
