What is auto number?
It is a field that we can include in an entity to create numeric identification for each record of that entity. The number is inherently incremented for each new record that you create.
In this blog we will see how we can create an auto number type field in Dynamics 365.
First go to the Power Apps and login with your credentials.
In power apps go to Solutions->RFQ
And select your entity in which you want to add the auto number field. Here we are creating in RFQ.
Now you can see on the top left side there is one option to “Add Column” and click on it to get a panel on the right side of the screen.
Fill all the required details and select data type as Auto Number.
Add a Prefix name and choose the minimum number of digits(auto generated number sequence) and seed value(sequential number part of your auto number column).
Now add this field to your form.
Tables->RFQ->Forms->New Form(Main Form)
Now search that auto number field from left panel. Select and drag it to the form where you want to add it.
Create a new record in CRM. After saving the record you will see the auto number field RFQ Number is being auto populated.
