    Change Unique ID widget name to include "Auto increment"

    Asked by arthurshurn on December 13, 2014 at 10:45 PM

    When ever I look for the auto Increment tool in the jot form Wizards I cant find it under "Auto Increment" or "Auto" or "Increment". When I look at the properties of an existing form it says auto increment NOT Unique ID. I usually have to search the forum to find the explanation. I see others have asked this same question. I suggest you change the widget search to return unique id when one looks for auto increment or change the properties in the form to say Auto Increment / Unique ID. Not a major issue but would make life easier.

    Hi Arthur,

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    I will forward this to our developers, but the reason why it is titled Unique ID is because it allows you several different ways to 'style' your jotform with a unique identifier and while it can be used as auto increment the auto increment would suggest that the number just adds up.

    As mentioned, I will still raise this to our developers to consider and if any change is made to this you will be notified about it through this thread.

    Best Regards,
