It is really a strong requirement to have a feature for an "autonumbering" - field...there are solutions out there in the wild, but it would be very nice to have this feature out-of-the-box in Crm.
Thank you for your feedback. We released this feature in Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.0. Please refer to the following link for more information:
Is there any ETA on this feature? I (and apparently many others) have waited a fair while for this feature to be considered. I did not see anything on the "road map" referring to the addition of this feature.Thank you
Yes Please include this feature in next edition of CRM. It saves huge amount of time for the developers/customizers. We have a huge demand to create auto numbers on almost every custom entity that we create. It shouldn't be too difficult for Microsoft to introduce this feature
Hi, This feature is in big demand from clients and expecting to have in near release under Dynamics 365.
One more point to highlight- Currently 'Name' is a primary field which is not usable in many projects as demand is to provide Number or some other field value while viewing under lookup. Can it be possible to custom define which field should be visible under lookup value? This will save lot of time while doing silly customization.
