This extension for Airtable generates a random number or alphanumeric ID based on settings that you define, such as: how many characters and whether or not to include letters.

💡For people coming from Excel: this tool is not quite a replacement for “RANDBETWEEN” and “RND”, but it might be good enough in a lot of use cases.

Note: random unique

It generates a new number for every record within that view. Is there a way to generate the new records only? This view is tied to the view needed for these random numbers already.
