Auto Increment Sequence Custom Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I was wondering if it is possible to have a custom field defined as an auto incrementing sequence number?  E.g. Let’s say I go in and create a project for the first time, this field will show the value 1.  The next project I go to create, the field shows the value 2 etc. etc.  If possible, how can this be implemented using customization?  Can it be done in Project Online?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  thank you!

  • Hi JSimoni1,

    You can generate a project unique ID using a webpart, even with Project Online.

    Please find below the procedure in EpmExpert blog:

    Note that the code might need some adjustments to stick to your business need.


    Hope this helps,
