Auto generate list item number in SharePoint

I've created a list where staff create new items and added a simple 'ID' number column (which is hidden) so every time someone adds an item, it generates a new ID number for that item.

 

It doesn't have to be a complicated ID number, just going 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc would be absolutely fine.

 

How do I achieve this with Flow?

Hi @mbutterz , 

 

In sharepoint you already have an ID column that auto updates withe record number as 1, 2, 3 etc. 

 

Click on Add Column -> Show/Hide Column and enable the ID column.
