    Im trying to accomplish a unique number on my locksmith forms for instincts at 14 lockout intake forms i want to be able to start my number at a specific form the only solution i have found is submission id widget someone else suggested me to use unique id but i dont know how to reset the numbers for example 


    My current form

    01)VEHICLE UNLOCK @ BUSINESS

    I want to start the number at 100 and every time we submit the next one will be 101 - 102 -etc

    So my next form will be 

    01)VEHICLE UNLOCK @ APARTMENT

    My first number would be starting with 201 and so on 

    I want to have 200 numbers in between each of my locksmiths forms so we have a unique number regards what form were using 

    The way i started doing it is probably not correct i am just submitting  the form manually to get the number i want this is not the correct way and you think im doing a fishing scam which i am not and all the emails are going to my personal account blank thank you for your help i appreciate a solution.

    Since you mention that there are two different forms, you may consider setting up the unique ID widget to start the number as per your requirement. You may set the Current Index as the starting number in the field properties.

    Please refer to the guide below that can help you with using the unique ID widget.

    Thank you for your explanation
    Is it possible you can do one form for me so I can copy the format I
    appreciate it thanks the number format in below
    L / O - 200 next L/O -201 and so forth
    The l o equals lockout the 200 is the job number it has to show up on the
    email which I believe is the mission page for Unique order number per
    lockout form
    Thanks

    I have created a sample form for you: https://form.jotform.com/80613467516963
    Feel free to clone it and see how it is set up.

    This is how the Unique ID Widget is configured.

    Current Index: 200
    Prefix: L/O-
    Number Padding: 0

    You can make a test submission and see how the widget number looks in the email.
