Mobile sign up random selection

I will be attending a trade show and using the mobile app on my tablet for sign ups and give-away's at the show. Each day @3:00, those who have signed up on the app are eligible to win. I need a way to randomly select a name from the entrants of that day. OF the several hundred people who sign up, how can I have the created contact list randomly select a name? Please advise.

Re: Mobile sign up random selection

Hello @BruceM722,


Thank you for reaching out to the community!


The contact management system is only designed to collect contacts and place them into a list. There is not a build in functionality to automatically pick a contact for sweepstakes or drawings. My recommendation is to export the list of contacts and use a random number generator (should be a quick search on the internet) to choose a row number for the winner. This is likely the best and most random way to select a winner. 


I hope that this was helpful!
