    Creating a "Tracking Number" through filled entries

    Asked by sgrami on June 14, 2016 at 12:07 PM

    Hello! I would like to create a very specific condition logic for multiple entries on my form. Essentially creating a tracking number combining the entered information. For example, by using a combination of 4 entries a “tracking” code is created. Is something similar to this possible without developing code for it?

    For example if these 4 fields are filled:

    Name: John

    Color: Blue

    Shape: Circle

    Date: 06/14/16

    A tracking number would populated similar to this effect:

    JOH-BLU-CIR-061416

    Is something like this possible? Let me know if you need any more details.

     

    Thank you!

    I believe I partially understand what you are trying to do with inserting a tracking code based on a condition.

    However, a question I have because of it is does it need to be a usable tracking code related to the submission or are you just trying to insert it into a field to know which that is if that makes sense?

    It is possible to use conditional logic to insert text into other fields though if you are planning on using this with the existing tracking widgets than I'm not entirely sure it would work to allow that.
