    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to share how you can now add autonumber fields to Dynamics 365. I know this has required either a third-party solution or an XrmToolBox Plugin in the past but now it's super easy to do...check it out:

    Thanks for sharing Gus!

    The only deficiency I see with the auto-number is that one cannot use other attributes as part of the field. And it also doesn't seem like one can call this "auto" functionality independently (i.e. getNextSequenceNumber()).

    I am going to work on this "gap" so that users can do a lot more with auto-numbers.

    I think it would be nice to be able to be to have an autonumber like {OptionSetText}-{RANDSTRING:4}
