My Unique ID with Prefix keeps resetting.Asked by motonation on May 21, 2013 at 12:41 PM
I use the unique ID as a way to assign case numbers for my customers. In the last hour it has reset itself two or three times, requiring me to manually assign case numbers as well as reset the current index to it's previous value.
unique id unique current index
Thanks for contacting us!
I checked your form submission page and I can see that the RA# values are in correct order.
Can please tell us where do you find the unique ID resetting, was it on submission page ?
I have been correcting the ID#s as they have come in incorrectly. They have only done it a handful of times so it may have stopped.
In the edit form interface, the index would reset to RA#1.
Thanks for looking into this, even if it ends up being nothing it is good know you guys are around to help.
Sorry for the inconvenience this may caused.
I cloned your form and I cannot replicate the error.
I also checked your form and the ID is in correct format.
If the error persists please do not hesitate to contact us again.
It's happened again, although I've left the incorrect ID#'s as they are. Do you mind taking a look?
I am having the same issue. My unique ID's started restting this morning at 11:39 am as shown in the image...and they are remaining the same number for each submission. NOT unique.
We are very sorry for this trouble.
I was able to reproduce the problem. This is happening due to populated Current Index value (it should have a numeric value only) with the Prefix value.
The problem has been escalated to our Developers. They will fix this as soon as they can.
In the meantime, you may consider removing the Prefix value, Unique IDs without that Prefix should be fine.
We will keep you updated via this thread.
I'm genuinely curious as to why this particular issue is presenting itself now. I've had over 200 submissions to my form over the last half year without encountering this issue with prefixes. If that is all I have to change to get it to work in the future it's a small sacrifice, but it's strange that it would pop up now.
Again, thanks for all the support. Your product is still amazing and makes my job run smoothly.
I think that something went wrong with one of JotForm updates (we release a lot of small improvements on a daily basis).
We will inform you once the problem is completely fixed. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
