Autogenerate Unique ID and restrict create duplicate Autogenerate ID

Hello There,


I have customized the form and created Autogenerated ID like the below link:


An item is created by 3 types:

- By clicking on new

- By Shared Email

- By Microsoft Form


Now, the client wants to show a unique ID when creating a new item and save it into the list but an issue is when more than 1 user creates an item then the same Autogenerate ID is saved so how can we avoid this situation?

Can't utilize the build in id column? That is unique at all times as a primary key is. Only other way might be to just utilize GUID() functions if id isn't an option.
