I've set up an auto-number field for quotes. When I Revise a quote, the new quote record has the same auto-number as the quote that it was revised from. The auto-number field does not increment.
Since the revised quote is a new record, shouldn't it have it's own auto-number?
This is by design.
Revising a quote does not trigger the auto-number field.
This is an example of an OOB auto-number field to illustrate this.
Althrough when you click 'Revise' , the system cancels the existing one and creates a new one cloning the previous one and increases the Revision ID, however, the field 'Quote ID' on the form does not change after revising, which is an OOB auto-number field.
I would recommend you share this idea to Microsoft to let them know your needs.
This is by design.
The idea of revision of Quote(q001) is that it should retain the original quote number so that one can always understand which quote is revised.
Reviaion ID reveals how many times the quote is revised.
You can always go and create a new quote which will be generated with new quote id.
The term revision demands what is revised and how many times it is revised.
As a work around, you can add additional auto number specific to quote entity based on your business requirement.
I did add an additional auto number to the quote entity, but it too does not increment on quote revision.
