    Is there a way of add a hidden counter to the form? (example order number?)

    Asked by creativedynamics on January 18, 2014 at 06:09 AM

    I would like to add a hidden order number to the form starting at 1000.

    So everytime a customer orders the order number is incremented. Maybe there is a widget? 

    If this is not possible then just being able to add the postcode to the notification email would also be great (thats of course if I ever receive a notification email (see my other question!)).

    Best

    We have a Submission Counting Widget but I'm not so sure that it would meet your request. I know it's possible to hide parts of your form using Injected CSS so that it is hidden on your form. But the thing that is having me wonder about this more is because of the way you've described it as " So everytime a customer orders the order number is incremented ". It sounds to me like if I am understanding you correctly that you wish to increment the Order Number alongside the Order from the customer which has been submitted to you. I think a Unique ID might work better for this so you may want to look into that more as possibility. It might even be possible to figure out something for these to work together but I would need more time to think about that to test if it is feasible or not.

    I think the unique ID might do it on its own however I can't test it properly until I recieve email notifications!

    Good to know that Kade's suggestion would seem to shed some light to what you're looking for.  I have also made a reply to the other thread regarding your email notification problems. 

    Thanks.
