Create a list of Parent and Child items with automatic countdown, OOTB RRS feed

  • Question

    Hello! I need to create an inventory custom list that has parent and child items. For example, one parent item could be 1000 - Computer and the child items of that item would be something like: 
    1000 - Computer 
     1000A - Monitor 
     1000B - Tower 
     1000C - Keyboard 
    Can this be achieved in SharePoint 2013 and with the same format I've shown above, with out of the box functionality or with SharePoint Designer?

    Hello World.

  • Hi AC- as far as I know, there's no way to accomplish what you want without custom design.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to create a list of Parent and Child items with automatic countdown with OOTB.

    Per my knowledge, it seems no good way to achieve your needs.

    As a workaround, we can create two level cascading drop down to add list item
