    Good afternoon, I wonder if it's possible to add a numbering to the form so that it exits with a tracking number. Well, in my case, this form is used to register vacancies, so I would like that when I receive the form in my e-mail, a number comes to my control, so I can associate the requested vacancy number.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    1) With a Unique ID widget, you can get unique autoincrement numbers.

    Example:

    VCN-00001
    VCN-00002
    VCN-00003
    etc.

    2) There is also a Random Value Generator widget available.

    3) Also, we automatically assign a unique Submission ID to each submission.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hello good night, thank you for the feedback.

    I think I identified the widget, but I do not know how to configure it, because I did some tests sending the form to my email and the numbering did not come in the body of the email received.

    Would you help me?

    If you have customized your email notification, it might not automatically update if you update the fields. What you can do is delete the notification and create it again so it will generate a default email template.

    Please check this guide https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-up-Email-Notifications on how to recreate a new one.

    Let us know if you have any questions or if you need further assistance.
