How do I generate a unique value and pass that value on to the email?

I want to create a unique ID which will have a preset text, followed by the current date and the current time.
for example - ABC261020181045

Since I am not a programmer, got this workaround in place -

created a hidden field to capture current date using [date format='Ymd']
created a hidden field to capture current time using [time format='His']
created a read-only text  field to display the values from the above 2 fields.

Hi Lalit,
If you are looking for auto-number with prefix and suffix that is guaranteed to be unique, you can use this - https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/using-dynamic-default-values-in-fields/#kb-automatically-increment-an-id
