    Auto number generation for each entry on the form

    Asked by skrishna on February 23, 2016 at 01:48 AM

    Hi all -

    So I have connected a Jot Form to a Google sheet. Is there a way I can include a Hidden field on the form which automatically generates a unique ID or value that can then be stored as a column on the sheet? Or should I use the sheet's internal trigger to figure that out?

     

    Thanks.

    You can add the Unique ID widget to the form and it is already hidden by default. Here's a helpful guide that you might need: Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions
