    How can I make my questions numbered?

    I just want my questions to be numbered so I can reference them in the form more easily.  Thanks!

    Hi jkendall,

    You can start each questions (or field labels) with a number, for example:

    1. Name
    2. Email address 
    3. Contact number
    4. Birthday
    5. Comments

    In this way, the numerical order will be retained in the email notifications that you receive for every successful submission. 

    We hope you will find this tip helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. 

    Thank you and enjoy using JotForm!

    Oh, ok, so there's no way to do it automatically?

    Unfortunately, you can only do it manually. There is no available auto-numbering feature at the moment in JotForm, but the workaround should do a good job for now.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm!
