Customize autonumbering for key fields

I have a sharepoint list for "Work Orders".  The Title field of the list is being used as the work order number, which is how each job is tracked.  So because the work order number / title is unique, i was hoping to have the next number automatically fill in the title data card when i click the button for a new form.  Is this possible?!  It would be huge if other office workers could just click a button in Powerapps, and the next work order number is already inserted into the form, and they could enter the other information manually.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Customize autonumbering for key fields

Hi radtadBrad,

 

Please try if this will work for your scenario.


I assume that the unique order should be number. So on the edit form, add a button beside the title field.


Then set the button’s OnSelect property as: UpdateContext({test: Sum(Last(ProjectEmail).Title,1)})


And set the Title field’s Default property as: test


Then when you click the button, a new title will be generated.


Hope this could be a reference for you.
