The Auto Number Column


The Auto Number Column allows you to number your items according to their order in a group or for the entire board. It is an amazing column to use if you want to keep track of how many tasks you have. It is also great if you have orders and want to have specific tracking numbers for them 1️⃣ 2️⃣ 3️⃣
