There is a new feature in V9 that allows us to define a field type as “auto-number.” As a few Microsoft Dynamics 365 commentators have noted, there is no way as yet to set a field as auto-number from the UI. It must be done using the API.
For more information, see Microsoft’s documentation at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/developer/create-auto-number-attributes.
There are a few installable solutions and external tools available that can do this for you, but that is outside the scope of this blog. Today, we’re talking about some of the things we’ve learned about the behavior of auto-numbered fields when importing data or solutions.
Hopefully, you find these learnings helpful. Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog for more Dynamics 365 tips and tricks!
