Adding automatic numbering to a form

I am trying to create a form for one of my projects. I would like the form when completed to assign a number to that task as a reference. The project is collecting requests that need to be completed and if there is a number the requester can reference it. Do you have any ideas on how to do that?

Hi @Diana_Weaver,

There are several solutions that people have developed to add a numeric identifier to a task; you can find them discussed in this thread:

Welcome to the Forum @Diana_Weaver and thank you for reaching out!

I’ve moved this post to the #tipsandtricks category to allow other members of the Forum to find it more easily. I hope you don’t mind!

Have a great Monday guys!

thanks Phil I read through the thread, but it looks like there is no real solution to automatically adding a number to the task.
