Hey Team,

Is there any way to auto-increment survey numbers (e.g. 1,2,3,4)? I have a Survey 123 Form that I'd like to make improvements on for our staff to collect data in the field. To address the duplicated numbers I've given them an assigned series, (i.e 10-###, 20-###) and have created separate forms for each of them to avoid duplicating survey numbers. It would be so much nicer to have this done "auto-magically" when conducting their surveys.

Respectfully,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Survey123 does not support auto-incrementing numbers currently; as you note, some careful construction needs to be considered and made in order to ensure duplicates are not submitted.

Hi Micheal, any chance that we could get auto-increment numbers added to survey123?

I got this simple one to work now

I got this to work for repeats

 

In a repeat have a field with a calculate (it can be editable)

Use this formula subbing in any field in the repeat (except itself)

        once(count(${RecKey}))
