Using a behaviour on the ‘when form is opened’ within a condition so it only runs in the first STAGE of your form you can present the current DATE in this format (using the appropriate ‘functions’ in behaviours (search the user guide for ‘functions’ for more information) but there isn’t an ‘autonumber’ that you can use to show what number of form was raised on that date. We only have the form instance number available for this as you have already seen I’m sure

Even if there was it wouldn’t be that useful for you as doing such things when a form is OPENED will create its own issues.

For instance if someone opens a form to be say the 1st form of that day, but then doesn’t submit the form, then the next person opening the form will show the 2nd form but you won’t have any form submission for the 1st form or if they opened this second form before the 1st form was submitted, then you would have 2 forms with the name number.
