I would like my database title to be a unique ID number in this format, ID : 1, ID: 2, ID: 3 etc, not sure what I am doing wrong, any help would be appreciated
Maybe you don’t get an answer, because the question isn’t clear. At least I don’t understand it at all. What databases are you talking about? What “database title”?
I am creating a database through pages, my bad lol
So far, so good. So what are “database titles”? Are you talking about the title field used for individual records? What are you creating where you need these kind of IDs?
If so, you can set the title field to be a “unique field” to avoid identical IDs, but you cannot auto-generate them. The title field will always be field the user has to fill.
But each record has an automatic internal ID. Maybe you can use that and show it (through template edits).
Thanks @opentype would it be possible to use that as the title do you think?
You are not a man of many words, are you? ;-)
You can show the record ID as title through template edits. Or you create a custom number field and set it to “unique field” as mentioned. Those are your two options.
So what we want to create is a database of members that have been banned from our server, with evidence attached to show why. But instead of having to title it each time we just want the title field to be ID: XXX that is generated automatically, if that makes sense?
Sorry for the short messages but I am not as experienced as my profile may seem
We are making the database through Pages, and having it displayed that way too.
