    Default Unique Number like door numbers

    I'm trying to create a signage schedule with a sign number that is unique to a family so I can schedule them. Is there a way to add a "Mark" to a family so that if the number is the same as another it will give you the error similar to when you have two doors with the same number... and can that number auto increment?

    So when I place a sign it gives it a number 01 then I place another and it automatically numbers it as 02, if I try and change the 02 to 01 I get an error that that number is already used...

    Is that possible?

    If you set the category of the family to Signage you will be able to schedule them by using signage as the schedule category. The mark can be applied and it will give you an error if you have multiple with the same mark, however it doesn't seem to have the incrementing capability built in for the category the same way doors do.

    There is this ReOrdering add-on from DiRoots on the Autodesk App store that will let you renumber all items of a category and even a specific family but it does not auto number new instances placed.
