I have a QGIS project running on QField that allows the user to draw points/lines and assign attributes to them. Every point/line gets an unique ID that get created through an UUID-Generator in QGIS.

When I open the project on QField, no ID is created and the ID is blank. How can I achieve an unique ID when I create objects using QField?

  • Have you checked that you have a correct data type in your field? UUID requires string field. – Ville Koivisto Dec 5 '19 at 11:50
  • yes, I have a string field for the id. the uuid generator works in qgis but does not work in qfield. – Lara Dec 5 '19 at 11:56
