    Number generator

    Asked by nikolai@mctdigital.com on May 22, 2016 at 01:39 PM

    So my first form is almost complete and its working great. All I need to wrap this up is I need for one cell in my form to generate a number based on which submission it is. For example it could say this is submission number xyz. Basically I'm building a PO req form and want the PO Number to auto populate so the user doesn't need to go in the the spreadsheet and see what number they are on.

    We have 2 widgets that might be useful for you.

    Unique ID widget - It adds a highly customize-able ID to your form.

    Random Value Generator - This automatically generates a unique value based on the settings on the widget every time the form is opened.

    Please check this helpful guide as well: How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
