Create a table record from the app that can auto generate table ID


I am trying to create an “Andon Event” app that you can enter data such as part number, image, description etc in the app and display this in a table. I want to make the ID’s so that event 1 has ID of 0001 and event 2 has ID of 0002 and so on. The person who enters the data however will not know what the next ID is. Is there a way that this can be done, so the next Andon event has an ID of the previous event +1.



hello @Nolsie, welcome to the Tulip Community!! it would be great if you could introduce yourself at: Welcome to the Community, let's meet!!!

this Post: Increment table ID field from the app - #3 by gio describes how you can use the Table API to get incremental ID’s based on the max in the Table. (as a note, the Product team is looking into other solutions to make this more streamlined, but this should help in the meantime.)

let us know if you have further questions!!

Thanks for that link @gio, i’ll try that out tomorrow.
