Auto-generate number not beginning at 1

I need to convert a Nintex form to PowerApps intake form that has auto-generated job numbers. This is already in production. I just need to convert all over to PowerApps. I don't know where to start.

The auto generate part of the Nintex form includes a separate list and Nintex workflow but I was hoping to be able to keep most of the functions on the PowerApps form.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous 

 

In PowerApps, you could use the inbuilt ID property in SP list/library or have another list that maintains the latest job number

 

For the formcontrol - once the form is posted

on OnSuccess property use

Patch(DataSource, FormName.LastSubmit,{JobNumber:FormName.LastSubmit.ID })

This will update the job number field once the form is submitted
