Hello Team,

 

I require your assistance were I want to create auto incremental numbering to file and folder name where whenever a folder/file is added to library, filename should get appended with incremental number from the previous one. Numbering should be incremental as per their relevancy in particular folder.

 

I was researching and tried to refer some posts where it suggests to create SPD Workflow but could not come with up actions and logic

Is this something possible in SharePoint Online? If yes, please help me through the steps.

Juan Carlos González Martín     any insight on this?
I really need help on this. Can you please help me with any steps or how can I achieve this as I have been discussing and found that this could be easy if done using Remote Event Receivers but I am not aware how and where to start from.

Please help
