We added a number field to our ticket fields for inventory. Our inventory uses four-digit barcodes, such as "1111". Unfortunately, any barcodes with leading zeros ("0027", "0143") lose their zeros when the form is saved ("0027" becomes "27"). Please consider maintaining the length of the numbers entered, otherwise it's no different than a regular text field. Thank you.
I know that this topic is old but we are having the same issue. One of our fields is for a serial number and the leading zeroes are removed. I understand that this is normal behavior for an integer storage type so how can I fix this without losing all of the existing serial numbers that have already been stored? I have considered just converting the field to a text type field but then I will lose everything that has already been stored in that field... Ideas?
