Leading zeros in Nintex form calculated field

I'm trying to generate an unique ID inside Nintex forms using a calculated field. This number should be the current date with the item ID at the end.


I'm trying to generate this into a calculated field and display it on the form. With some runtime functions, getting the current date and put it in a specific format is not a problem. Adding the item ID at the end is easy too, but I want to have the ID with some leading zeros in front. Is there a function to achieve this?


This is what I already have: formatDate({Common:CurrentDate}, 'yyyyMMdd') + {ItemProperty:ID}


There should be a function like format({ItemProperty:ID}, '000000') but this doesn't work.


Any suggestions on this? By the way, this is in Nintex Forms Office 365.


Thanks in advance!
