    Field Numbering: Automatically number each field

    Asked by memnoc42 on November 01, 2016 at 10:29 AM

    I searched your forum and only found a reply from 2011.  Was hoping you had added this feature.  I have over 250 fields.

    Do you want to add a number to each field? There is no option to automatically number them, you will need to manually do it. If you need to manage multiple fields at once, here is how: https://www.jotform.com/help/242-How-to-Manage-Multiple-Fields 

    If you are looking to create conditions, they will appear in a number list:

    Also, if you need to set a unique identifier to each submission, please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/79-How-to-Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions 

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Under "Conditions" for "Conditional Logic" you do a great job of numbering the fields, as shown in the picture above.  Is there is not a way to use that numbering on the form?  As mentioned, I have over 250+ fields.  If I delete or add one, there is at least one hour of my time updating the numbering.

    Unfortunately, we don have a feature to manually number them. I have forwarded a request to our back end team, to have an automatic feature to accomplish it:

    Please note that this could be approved or declined, and it is approved, there is no estimated time-frame for an implementation. You should be notified via this thread if there is any progress on this request.

    I have over 900 text boxes.  I'm on hour #2 of numbering.  A text gui would even be helpful, where all fields would show up and I could click just once to update the text.  As it stands, I have to triple and quadruple click every box to number.

    The feature request was raised by my colleague. Unfortunately, we do not have any ETA for when it can be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates.
