Sequential numbering of an ID

Each of our projects runs an Actions Log alongside the workplan - these items are more like you would find on a Prince2 Daily Log than project Tasks.

The Actions Log for each project is currently in Excel and I would like to move them to Clarizen. The project managers have said that a key field for them is the ID field and that this is a sequential number within each separate project ie. each project will have a Log that starts with action 1.

I've set the field Action ID up but cannot work out how to get this field to auto-populate with the next sequential number in each project. I'm sure it's probably quite straightforward but I just can't work it out.

This was something we looked for in the past also and its not supported via a few different posts. You can try http://www.clarizen.com/appsmarketplace/item/Project-Numbering.html   this app for project numbering. If the projects are the same and can be templatized you could create custom field for the ID and then just use this as a starting place using project numbering to differentiate tasks between projects
