    Hi,

    Ideally you can use the Unique ID widget for this. But because the Unique ID widget cannot be seen by users on the live form, the alternative you can use is the Random Value Generator widget.

    You can use the Random Value widget to generate the unique ID/number similar to the steps on how to when using the unique ID widget in the user guide : How to Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions

    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
