    All fields that you add to your form are accompanied with LABELS. If your aim is to display sequential numbers on each field, just label your fields with the numbers.

    e.g.

    In the form https://www.jotform.com/build/71525277358665
    I need to put a field to report the sequential number of the application.

    This is possible with an autoincrement Unique ID widget field. Please take a look at the following guide.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to show "Unique ID" widget or its value in form. Please note that unique ID is generated only after the form is submitted and that mean when the form is loaded, unique ID widget does not have any value (unless you open the form to edit submission). 

    If you want, you can display the unique id value in thank you page or notification emails as they are displayed after the form is submitted successfully.

    Thank you!
