Monday newbie and struggling to do a very basic yet simple and critical task.
- I want to auto add a task number / item ID when a board item is created. And for this ID to stay with the item. Ie, to act as a ticket ID.
1.1 And for an option to do similar for sub items. Eg if an item, has a number of “10”, the sub items would be “10.1” / “10.2” etc.
- There is an option to add an “auto number” column which simply starts with 1 for the top item. Which is of no use when items move position.
- And there is an “item ID” column. But this is unique to all Monday.com items, so it’s of no use whatsoever.
I suspect most clients would use this feature.
And I have seen this has been requested several times before.
So, is Monday.com refusing to do this?
And why, given I suspect it would only be a days’ work to implement.
My alternative is to junk Monday and switch to Jira or similar.
