The ‘Auto Number’ widget for your workflow can enable the automatic generation of unique numbers. You can use them to create different serial numbers for forms, subforms, etc.
Auto Number Widget—Properties
The Type property has two settings.
- Regular – Generates an incrementing number sequence.
- Custom – Allows the user to specify the template for the generation of the number sequence.
The Template property defines the template to use for generating numbers. This property is only displayed when the Type property is set to Custom.
The Prefix property on the right panel will help you to include certain characters at the beginning of each auto-generated number. These characters will be common to each number generated.
The Postfix property on the right panel will help you to include certain characters at the end of each auto-generated number. These characters will be common to each number generated.
The Length property on the right panel allows you to set the length of the auto-generated number.
You can change the name of the ‘Auto Number’ using a label property. It is ‘Auto Number’ by default. For example, you can keep the label of your Auto Number as ‘Serial Number.’
