    Hi,

    Is there a way to auto-generate an order # and then pass that order # to Monday.com?  I've found some forum articles that explain how to get the auto-generated # via the Unique ID widget, but I also need to get that order # passed to Monday.com for each submission.   

    Thanks, Roger

    Hi Roger - Unfortunately, the Unique ID widget cannot be mapped with Monday.com fields.

    As a workaround, you can just add a new column in your Monday.com board and use the AUTO-NUMBER column type:

    Hi JohnRex,


    Thank you for the quick reply.  Since there's no way to get the UniqueID widget output directly to Monday.com via the integration, is there a way to get the output of the UniqueID widget into a hidden text field on the jotform.com form?   Since jotform.com text fields are mappable to monday.com via integration, that might work.  

    Thanks, Roger

    I'm afraid that the value from the unique ID widget cannot be captured on a widget or with conditions and pass it to another field as it's generated after the submission. 

    As an alternative, you may try with the following widgets and see if they can be mapped on Monday.com: 

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/submissions-counter

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/random-value-generator

    You may try getting the values from this widget and insert it conditionally to another field too. 

    If you have questions, let us know.
