We found a simple way to generate a "random" number in one of your apps- this could be helpful if you want to generate a unique identifier on the fly for your submission- while we can't generate an actually "random" number, we can generate a numerical string that can be essentially random.
Here's how you'll want to set it up:
First, set up a date field, and uncheck "mobile visible" in the "more" menu to keep it in the background of your app:
Then, create a time field, set the style to HH:MM:SS, and uncheck mobile visible:
Then, to create your "random number generator" you'll create a calculation field and multiply the date and the time field:
Once you've done this, your generator will be ready to publish! You'll get something that looks like this:
How it works:
The number generated isn't truly random- it is always going to be a product of the date times the time, converted into an integral numeric string. Because you're using the HH:MM:SS style for your time field, while it is technically possible for the number to duplicate between different users, they would have to generate the number within the same second and date to have an identical number.
