Is there a way to generate a number for a form created on SharePoint? For example, I want to have a person fill in a form with a lot of information and the I want their form to be numbered 1001 without having to input the number 1001 by myself.

  • Where want you to store this number ? in a custom field ? – Ahmed Bouchaala Jan 28 '19 at 16:02

    It depends on what the specifications for the number are. Is it just to give uniqueness to the entries? Is it supposed to be the number of forms that have been submitted, thus far? Is 1001 a code to be referenced later (ie 1001 could be a New User form, and 1002 could be a policy refinement submission), etc. Can you give more information? Additionally: do you have access to InfoPath Designer? Some of these things are easier to do with InfoPath. – KGlasier Jan 28 '19 at 16:03
