Create Increment Field using Workflow

Posted on by 10

I want to create an increment field for numbering in my entity. The sequence will go from 1,2,3, ...... 20,21,22, ..... and so on.

I want to increment the field by 1 each time a new record is cretaed. So Record 1 will have ID of 1, record 2 will have ID of 2 and so on..

Is there a way to do this using a workflow?

    What have you tried so far? Implementing autoincrement using Workflow is not recommended.

    Can't get that to work. Have you any information about doing it using a WorkFlow?

    This field type can be added to any entity including custom entities.

    I've created a Custom entity and want to implement on the custom entity. Is the OOB type of field not just for certain OOB entities or can you use it for Custom entities?
