we have hundreds of projects and so we need an unique identifier for projects. Manual numbering in project_name field is not very comfortable and can lead to meaningless names like Project1, Project2 etc. If I do it using naming_series in Project doctype, I won’t be able to make updates via bench update, is it right? And this is what I don’t want.
Is there a way or workaround, how to do it without touching project doctype using client side customization?
I thought about creating a custom script, which will set project_name to some auto-incremented value automatically on project creation. Descriptive project name then could be saved in a new custom field, called for example project_title. Is it possible to do it like this? Or is there a better/simpler way?
I have tried to do it using this script, but it didn’t work for me. It will be my first script, could you please outline possible solution?
