    How can I set up a sequence for submissions?

    Asked by MEGSSS on December 25, 2013 at 04:53 PM

    I'd like to set up a sequence that begins with the year of the submission, and numbers are automatically added to it...

    Submissions and unique id

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can add an Unique ID widget field to your form in order to add the hidden IDs.

    If you would like to show the year of submission you can add it as Prefix. It will not be automatically updated, so you will need to change the prefix value once a year.

    You will get the following numbers with this setup:

    2013-0001
    2013-0002
    2013-0003
    2014-0004
    etc.

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