    Auto Numbering or Unique ID's but showing

    Asked by Mark Watson  on October 10, 2014 at 06:53 AM


    I came across your service today and it looks spot on for what I need but I'm struggling with one point. I want to create a purchase order form for my colleagues when they go into a materials place and orders things. I've seen all the templates and I'm comfortable with doing my own but I want my colleague to see the unique number on the form or at least see it once they've hit SUBMIT so they can quote it to the seller.

    I've seen the Unique ID widget but it hides the field.

    Is there anyway I can get it to show it even if its after they've hit the submit button but not have to wait for the email to come through that may show it?

    Actually, think I may have solved this myself.

    I've updated the thank you message settings so that it includes the Unique ID field within the message so that my colleague can quote it too the seller!!
