Create a counter in form

1. What is the problem? Be very detailed.
We need to create a counter in a form, so, the first time the form will be created it will have 1, than, the second time the counter values has to be 2 and so on....

2. What app or server are you using and on what device and operating system? Include version numbers.
we are using ODK collect 1.5, and we cannot upgrade to newser ones... sorry.

3. What you have you tried to fix the problem?
we found the last-saved function, but it seems to not work on our odk collect version... or maybe we didn't use it in the correct way...

4. What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?
load the example form we created

5. Anything else we should know or have? If you have a test form or screenshots or logs, attach below.

thank you very much

Hi @Angelo_Lazzari1
so you want to have values like 1,2,3 etc for every saved (filled) form. Am I right?

What version are you using?

could you attach the xls version?

Yeah, you are right, 1,2,3 and so on... I would like to put it in a variable and than manage it as I want...

We are using collect app version 1.5 ... I attack the XLS version

thank you very much!

oh that's a very old version and last-saved was not supported then indeed. Why do you still use such an old version? If you don't upgrade there is no way to fix your problem.

we cannot use another app because we have some tech limitation to upgrade.... thank you very much for your time.
