Hi, Manoj,

Can you explain what type of behavior you would like to see? Do you want a
number to automatically populate? What type of number/what increment?

You can do calculations using hidden values, as explained here:

Hi Manoj,

Unfortunately there is no easy way in CommCare to assign unique ids to each
case in the way you are envisioning. However, CommCare does automatically
assign a unique id to every case that is opened. You can see this id in
exports, and use it to link together forms that are about the same case.

It is common for projects to use an existing ID system (e.g. based on
village code / household number, health insurance number, etc) assigned by
their organization or the government outside of CommCare. This seems to
work well.

Thanks,
Amelia
