Auto Number for Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Our Auto Number solution has been designed so it’s available as a single code base for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Online, On-Premise, and Partner Hosted deployment scenarios. Auto Number provides you with the ability to generate Auto Numbers based on your business requirements. It’s easy to use Auto Number to create a new Auto Number Definition as there is no need to use the plug-in registration tool, and no requirement to know the technical names of entities or fields.

This release is fully functional, and installs by default in Trial Mode, which means approximately 1 in every 10 Auto Number requests will generate just random text. Trial Mode can be removed by applying a licence key for your CRM Organisation. To obtain this trial licence key, please Contact Us.
