    I'm looking to create a sheet for purchase orders.  The main objective I am trying to achieve is to find a number generator that the user cannot change.  This number would need to change every time the page is opened, be visible to the user and be able to be sorted by those numbers. 

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi,

    You can add a unique ID widget to your form:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/79-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    This will allow you to create a unique ID for each submission.  This will increment automatically each time the form is submitted.  They will not be able to change this number.  You can sort your submission data according to that number.

    If you need the number to change every time the form is loaded, that is not possible at this time.  The number will only change when the form is submitted.
