    Can I number or create an order of forms that have not been submitted yet?

    Asked by TinaSwetman on July 06, 2017 at 05:16 AM

    We use consent forms in a very busy piercing studio and wonder if we can number the forms in any way to help us keep track of who is where in the queue?

    Hi,

    I am not quite sure if I understand your query correctly. Do you mean you want to assign unique number to each submission to your form? Can you please check Unique ID widget if it is what you are looking for? If not, kindly give us more information regarding your requirement so we can further help.

     

    Regards.

    Hello!

    The unique ID feature doesn't suit my needs as I need something that will number the forms as they are opened, in the order they are opened with the purpose of seeing which customer is first. Therefore i need a feature that will work whilst the form is still open and hasn't been submitted if possible..

    Thanks!

    So if I'm understanding your concern correctly, you want to get a counter for every page load. So for example count 1 gets a submission, count 2, 3, and 4 did not submit, the next submission count 5 is what you will see on your submission, is that correct?  If so, perhaps you can try the W3C counter widget. You can check this page: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/w3counter

    Thanks.

    Again this feature doesn't suit my needs as I need something that will number the forms as they are opened, in the order they are opened with the purpose of seeing which customer is first. Therefore i need a feature that will work whilst the form is still open and hasn't been submitted. Also the W3Counter tells me how many forms have been opened but not in which order.

    Unfortunately, there is no other option for this. This, however, is possible to be made via custom development, but you will need to have a programmer for this. A programmer must create a custom counter then will have this embedded in a form and for all forms. Then the source should be one database. 

    To place the code or use the developed script in a form, you can get your form's full HTML source and place it on your web page. You can check this guide to know how to get the code: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    Thanks.
