Add a unique id to subscriber on sign-up

Hi There,

I have a requirement to add a sequence number to a subscriber record when they sign up to the mailing list, does anyone know if I can create an 'autonumber' field in a list? When a user signs up to the list a unique id number is then assigned to this contact record.

This ID number will then be used to administer competitions, offers etc.

Hi Adam, welcome to the forums! If you (or someone you know) is handy with the Campaign Monitor API, you can create a subscribe form that autofills a 'sequence number' custom field when someone signs up. This will require a little scripting on your site, so can't be done automatically by us, I'm sorry to say.

Let us know if you have any questions about this, we're happy to help.
