    Unique ID widget Not starting at specific number

    Asked by ceu.csupomona on October 29, 2014 at 12:40 PM


    I just found out about the unique ID widget and tried to use it but it did not work correctly. The option to put the current index did not work. I want it to start counting from 400 so it doesnt duplicate our existing numbers we had previously. But it still started with 1.

    should be CEU14-400

    but when I did a test the id came in as CEU14-1


    Is there an issue or the widget cannot start at any number lower than 1000?


    Thank you.

    Ok, I am not sure what happened this time but it started working. I removed the unique and redid it and this time it is working.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It should not be a problem to set a current index value lower than 100 on the Unique ID widget. I have just checked it, and I was not able to reproduce any issues.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
