Automatically insert numbers, letters, dates, times or field values into any field of any entity within Microsoft Dynamics 365.

What is PowerAutoNumber?

This popular PowerPack add-on automatically inserts sequential numbers, random letters, dates, times or even other field values into any field of any entity within Dynamics 365. The ability to assign a customisable and unique ID to a field – whether it be in a custom entity or an out-of-the-box field like Account, Quote, Invoice, Work Order, etc. – can be beneficial in organising and tracking records.

It’s as simple as installing the solution, choosing the format and pointing it to the entity and field on which it should be applied. And it requires no custom coding whatsoever!

PowerAutoNumber works on any record: existing, new, and imported. It can also be configured to fire only when a new record is created, only when an existing record is updated or both. For example, it can be programmed to auto-populate a number in the Account field only when an Opportunity associated with that Account has been marked as Won.

  • Auto-insert in multiple fields per entity (Account, Case, Product, etc.)
  • Auto-populate a field (or fields) upon saving a record
  • Auto-concatenate two fields into one
  • Choose from multiple formats (see screenshot below for details)
Features Specific to Sequential Numbers

See screenshot below for formatting specifics.

  • You can start at any number (1, 563, 987654321 or any other number – your choice!)
  • The number can be as many digits as you like (e.g., if you elect to start at 563, the auto-populated number could be 563, 00563, 000000000563, etc. – again, your choice!)
  • Within each field, numbers will be added sequentially and are guaranteed to be unique



Price is per user, per month. All enabled users are automatically counted – this includes read-only users, admin-only users and service accounts.
