Native Dynamics 365 v9 Auto Number Solution for Custom Entities

I spent some time watching the some of the Microsoft Ignite sessions on YouTube, and the most interesting from a Dynamics point of view was Matt Barbour’s session looking at platform updates for Dynamics 365 Customer Edition v9.

One thing that was not disclosed at the preview sessions earlier this year was the addition of Auto Numbering for any entity – not just a few select core entities. From the screenshot Matt put up explaining how they are created in C#, it was enough to see how they were defined, so I wrote a web resource to allow users to create these without any code.

To download and see how it works find full instructions can be found on the Dynamics 365 Heroes blog. Hopefully this will not be required for too long as I would expect the native UI to be updated in a minor rather than a major update.

Any questions, let me know!
