Our latest version of the Dynamics CRM AutoNumber solution we introduced almost 4 years ago has enhanced prefix/suffix capabilities.
In the example shown below you can see that we have set the prefix so that is uses the current System Date in the yy/mm format. with a / as the Date Separator. The delimiter between the date field and the sequential number can also be selected from a option set. In this case we used a -. That will insert sequential numbers with a changing year/month into any System, Custom or Customizable entity. In the example shown we are insert the AN into the Opp ID# field on the Opportunity form.
The AN configurator also allows you to create a prefix or suffix using a look-up value.
The AutoNumber solution works with CRM Online (all data centers), CRM On Premise 2011 or 4, IFD mode or not, and CRM Partner Hosted.
