What does it do?
The Unique ID perk provides a new “Unique ID” field type which generates a unique ID for the entry when submitted. It supports several types of unique IDs including alphanumeric, numeric, and sequential.
- Provide a set-length confirmation or reference number for each entry; could be displayed on the confirmation page and in notifications (i.e. “Your confirmation number is ABC142Z3”).
- Maintain a sequential invoice number (a legal requirement for some countries)
- Generate a unique coupon code that can be used on subsequent form submissions (tutorial coming soon!)
- Generate a unique number for use in raffles
There are probably a hundred other ways this could be used. We would really love to hear how you’re using it!
How does it work?
This plugin provides a new “Unique ID” field type (available in the “Advanced Fields” group). When a form containing a “Unique ID” field is submitted, a unique ID is generated and populated for this field. The ID is unique to the form and field.
