    Can I create a field that auto populates a number?

    Asked by Brian Finkbiner  on July 16, 2015 at 10:05 AM

    I am trying to create a form that will generate a unique number each time the online form is filled out and submitted. Is there any way to do this? Almost something like a confirmation #.

    We actually have an automatically incrementing unique ID widget that would be perfect for that:


    This will allow you to setup a custom starting value that increments each time the form is submitted.  The value will be forwarded along with your submission data.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
