Sharepoint Knowledgebase: How to automatically generate and assign a document ID?
Posted on 2010-11-10
I'm setting up a knowledge base within Sharepoint Services using the Knowledge Base plugin provided by Microsoft. I've got the website up and running and I know how to add customized columns when documents are being created.
What I want to tackle now is a unique ID for the document. When a user creates a document, I want a field called Document ID to auto generate a document ID for the document. This ID is unique to the document and will never be used again.
Any ideas on how I can do that?
