I've been trying to create a some way to use the "count()" function or the "mkto_id()" function to assign unique id's without the use of a logic hook (because I don't have a backup of our sugar instance anyways so I wouldn't be able to work on it anyways really.) Although if this needs a logic hook, I'd graciously accept anything anyone can tell me on how to create one, I have read through the support documentation with little success... If I create a relate field, can I set a default related record so I can call count on that record to generate a sequential unique id? Is a default specifiable on a relate field?
PS: I've been researching this for a few weeks, I've done the research but this specific issues has been as elusive as it's been complex. Any help would be appreciated.
