    How can I get a form to generate a unique form number with every submission?

    Asked by SamsungCanada on October 20, 2016 at 11:24 AM

    I am creating a travel request form for my team. When they submit a request. I need it to populate a unique number that can be used for accounting to tie expenses incurred during the trip to the travel request submitted.



    Also, is there a way to add an option for the administrator to Approve or Reject submissions?


    Thank you for your assistance,
