We are seeing frequent use case to have a reference number type of field (numeric EA) which would get a unique number as default value.
Use case: Marketing department needs a new brochure and starts an appropriate project. They have a reference number EA on the project which represents that particular creative piece. Therefore it needs to be incremented value but it also needs to be unique for that particular creative piece. When the brochure is first created (version 1, revision 1), we would like to be able to use system feature to generate unique reference number (increment of previous reference number). Once that creative is built and project finished, we will need to update revision/version later in the future. When starting a project to update that piece of creative to new version/revision, we would overwrite the reference number default generated value with the original reference number for that particular creative piece so that all versions/revisions of the same piece would be tied with the same reference number.
This can be customized, but it is a use case in practically every marketing department, so it would be good for Marketing Productivity to have the feature of generating unique incremented numbers for this type of use case. Generator should take into the account EA length limitation and generate number with leading zeros.
