    Customized Asset/ID Numbers?

    Asked by Heather Padolina  on April 10, 2014 at 11:17 AM

    I am not a customer yet but I need a question answered of your form capabilities before I can purchase. I am building a form where someone enters information and a ID number is generated. Is there a way to make those ID numbers generate in increments of five instead of 1? (ex: 2040, 2045, 2050, 2055 rather than 2040, 2041, 2042, 2043, etc). Also can we set that number to start at a specific number? (ex: 2000 instead of 1).

    For now you cannot define the interval of increment, but it is possible to define the starting point of the index and add a prefix and number padding:

    If you wish we can forward this suggestion to our developers so they can analyse the feasibility of this feature.

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.
