AutoID Colum let you configure an auto increment ID with a preceding text, a starting number and a minimal number of digits. The AutoID is stored in the specified text column.
When added to the board the recipe can be configured with the sentence:
When a new item is created, generate an auto-increment ID – preceded by this text and starting with this number (with the minimum number of digits) – in this column.
The text column specified in this column will be automatically populated with an ID which is preceded by the specified (this text) and starts with this number. The number of digits variable specifies the minimum number of digits. An ID can look like this INV-0100.
It is highly recommended to lock the ID column by clicking the down arrow and choose Column Permissions > Restrict column edit.
**NEW** as of February 2021 the app offers two new recipes, one that triggers on item creation and another one triggering on status change. Both recipes enable backfill empty ID values with the AutoFill recipe which makes it easier to start with an existing board.
