    Random Number Generator for submitted forms?

    Asked by pressloop on March 09, 2015 at 09:21 AM

    Hi --


    I will be using my JotForm to collect new orders... It would be nice to have some sort of reference # or project # generated when the form is submitted.... I cannot seem to find a widget that does this.... Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    You can use the Unique ID widget that allows you to have an auto-increment number that:



    Or a Random Value Generator:


    But as you are dealing with order perhaps the Unique ID is better as it is sequential and this might help when trying to locate an order.

    Let us know if we can assist you further.
