We have an Airtable form to submit internal orders, and it would be very helpful for our team to have a field that shows the last record number before filling in a new order. Not to create the order number – we have autonumbers set up – this is because they have to add the current PO to one of the files that gets submitted in the form itself. Right now they’re going and checking the latest order number in the normal Airtable view before submitting the form, but if they can cut that step out it would be helpful!

Is there any way to add in a view-only or read-only field?

I looked at trying to integrate the interfaces with forms too and that didn’t quite get what I was going for.

Thank you!

Unfortunately, this is only possible with 3rd party forms that work with Airtable, such as or the combination of JotForm + On2Air Forms.

(As far as I know, you would also need to slightly restructure your database to get the latest record number sent to the form.)
