I support the idea to create functionality to have NUMBER SEQUENCES ON CUSTOM FIELDS.
A typical use case I encounter a lot: a delta interface is needed to a payroll system (not Ceridian) and since rehires for the payroll system require a new unique ID of the worker, the personnel number cannot be used as unique ID for payroll. More logical to use a field "employmentID" which does not exist so can be created as custom field. But when no number sequence with all the usual options in its setup, you can get duplicates.
