    How can we use uniqueID widget to create sequent numbers in desired format?

    Asked by Lori Tomlin on February 11, 2015 at 04:22 PM
    Also, I want to check if JotForm has the functionality that would allow me to create a numeric field that would contain a unique number, such as Permit#, and automatically generate sequential numbers for newly submitted forms?

    You can achieve this requirement by using our UniqueID widget

    You can set a Prefix to the ID and some number padding for the autoincrementing number with this widget. This field will not be displayed on your JotForm.

    Please refer to the following guide below with more information on using this widget.
