Unique ID Form Field: Use a form field in the prefix

  • Profile Image
    Asked on April 23, 2013 at 04:06 AM

    I use with my form a prefix with a unique ID
    It would help me greatly if I could use instead of the prefix field (full name)
    Would that be possible?

    so it is now: 

    my wish:
    Max Meier - 4711
    Max Meier - 4712
    Hans Berger - 4713

    Thanks and best regards

    Hi Manfred,

    If you want custom prefix in your unique Id based on the user's fullname, this feature is not available yet but I can add this to our feature request list. However,I  cannot give exact date when this will be implemented. You will hear update via this thread. Thanks

    Instead the Prefix text "Bewerbung-"
    the field full name (ID # input_17)

    Hans Müller-000001 =
    ID # input_17 + # hidden_38

    Thanks for the clarification. Sorry, we have many "unique" stuff, so I didn't get that you were talking about the Unique ID field under Power Tools. I have added a feature request about this. One of our developers will implement this. Thanks.

    Hi Nicholas,

    many thanks works perfectly,

    why do I need the "|" (dash)?
    works without dash

    The dash symbol "-" was just a separator, you can removed it to your preference.

    The other symbol you see on the screenshot "|" was a typing cursor identifier. :)
