Would like to use Auto-Numbers to organize work

I just added auto-numbers to my board and here are my problems with it:

  1. you can’t search by the number. I custom added a prefix (ex: "AB-) and would like to search the board by the auto-number
  2. The number changes when you move it around the board. I don’t need it to be in numerical order. I need it to be a way to ID our work. Workflow > OCD.

Basically, hoping this feature can be changed to what Jira has.

hi @kz9706

Welcome to the community! The AutoID Column app (https://monday.com/marketplace/17) solves the issues you are experiencing. The app writes the highly configurable ID to a text column which makes it searchable and stick to the item.
