How to generate a unique ID for each new submission?
This feature is only available for Pro and Enterprise subscribers.
If you need a unique identifier for your form submissions, we can generate a unique ID for each submission. Having a unique ID can be useful if you're using the " Update on Form Submission " feature for instance. You have the choice between two different formats:
Auto-incremented number: the first submission will have the ID "1", the second will have the ID "2", and so on.
A unique random ID with the UUID format (with the following format: 820f1844-bd04-44a0-aa69-d7e8b77c22ce)
Here's how to use this feature:
Add a new text property in your Notion database
In NoteForms, open the settings for that new text column:
Scroll down to the Advanced Section of the window, and choose one between our two options (auto-incremented ID or randomly generated).
Save your form and you're done!
Note when setting up this option for a column, we will automatically hide the column in your form. In your list of fields you can see that the option is enabled for a field with the text "Auto ID"
