I am interested in finding out how to generate a unique Customer Number when creating a new customer. This very important when you have, for example - a large number of people who share the same name and your agents have to go through all the names to answer queries. This applies to Suppliers (Supplier Number) too. In the Employees documents for examplyee the system creates a unique employee number for each employee that gets loaded.
I am not sure if this is an out of the box functionality provided by ERPNext as i have tried using the “Series” functionality in vain.I know that i may have to created a custom field to achieve that but if i do then how will do i create a unique field that is automatically generated when saving a record? If you need any clarification please do ask.
