Issuing Membership Numbers

Is there a way to issue sequential membership numbers to people joining?

Hey Roocypher,

You can connect Memberstack + Airtable uisng Zapier and then generate the autonumber on Airtable (create a field with type ‘Autonumber’):grinning:

Membership IDs on Memberstack are randomly created.

Hey, so my solution at the moment is to trim the memberstack member id to 6 characters in excel before uploading to MailChimp. Any issues with that do you think?

Hey Roocypher,

I don’t think there will be an issue. Any reason you’re trimming it down?

Hey, just to make it a bit more accessible/memorable. I’ve run duplicate checks and it all seems fine.

Combined with MailChimp merge fields, it’s become a good way to communicate member numbers to people with an auto email for new subscribers :slight_smile:

Is there a way to then bring that membership number back into MemberStack from Airtable and display that on the member’s profile as a field that cannot be changed?
