auto numbering

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I am looking to add a auto number for each contact, in a field.

 

I thought that i saw this feature added to act and cant seem to find it.

 

Am I wrong?

 

Presently on: 18.2.53.0, Update 6

updating to latest version soon.

The feature is still in beta testing right now - there'll be more information about it nearer release!

Hi Joseph,

 

There are a couple AddOns  you might want to take a look at on the Act! Marketplace!

 

AutoNumbers for Act! Records by Exponenciel

 

and 

 

Account Number Generator by ADS Programming

 

Both great AddOns.

 

Give us a call if you have further questions.

As mentioned, this isn't a core feature of Act - but there are a number of different addons that can provide this functionality, as John has listed above!

Re: auto numbering

Act does have a unique ID field that is not visible and not editable but there is a free add-on that copies this to another field that is visible.

 

It is rather long so may not fit your needs depending what you wanted to use it for. More information from link below.

Also, just to add a little more confusion - with the new Custom Tables feature that is planned to release alongside v20.1 (coming soon) - this will be something you're able to do.
