    How can i create a project number generator for my form?

    Asked by gabihanna on March 28, 2016 at 05:24 PM

    Hey There!

    I'm creating a form and was wondering if there is a way to add a number generator to it. 

    here's what i have done so far, From the quick tools I added 'number' to my form and made it invisible. I tried adding a calculating condition but was unable to get a result.

    I need it to generate project numbers consecutively for each request that comes in. ie: 00001 - 99999  

    Is that possible?

    Yes, this is possible and you only need to add the Random Value Generator to your form, here is the link to the widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/random_value_generator

    This guide will help you to add the widget to your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form

    I did a demo form and you may take a look on this link: https://form.jotform.com/60877423750965

    Basically you would need to set the form like this: 

    If you do not allow only numbers it will show a string that will contain numbers and letters. 

    Hope this helps.
