    Hello llunell,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to add a auto-generated unique number in every submission. Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement by adding "Unique ID" widget in your form. Please note that unique id widget will also allow you to customise the auto-generated number by adding prefix. You may also like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/79-How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
