    Is it possible to have entries numbered sequentially by automation

    Asked by gibbonized on November 26, 2014 at 04:12 AM

    Dear Jotform Team,

    I like your service and some of its features. It makes certain parts of my work a lot easier. I wanted to check and see if it is possible to set up something, that automatically puts a sequental number to each form.

    I set up a new form for our complaint management. I would be super handy if each entry got some kind of number or sequental code to make it unique and help with the futher processing.

    Is there such an option in jotform? Or some kind of work around?



    Thank you,

    Regis Funke

    Hello Regis,

    You can add a Unique ID widget on your form.  This way you can get a sequence of incrementing number for every submission of the form that you receive.  This field is also hidden so it will not appear on the form when loaded.

    You can learn more on the Unique ID widget form this user guide.

    Feel free to let us know if you have more questions or if there's something I misunderstood on your inquiry.

    Thanks.
