Does the alfresco community edition have a feature that can implement unique document ID's in the document for each new print of the same document?

For example:

I would like to print out order sheets but would like each order sheet to have a unique order sheet ID so as not to clash with other order sheets when documenting them.

AFAIK, There isn't any such feature available out-of-the-box which will give you a unique Id each time for a specific action for a same document.

If at all such functionality is required, you may want to take a customization approach and develop it.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the quick response.

If we were to consider a customization approach and develop it, what would

be the estimated pricing range?

Are you referring to estimated effort or how much such a customization would be "worth" e.g. if provided as an addon?

Generating unique document IDs is a pretty simple use case and can easily be implemented, either by using a global node as a counter-holder (using a simple long property) or an attribute (see AttributeService). It'd be a task of maybe an hour for me or half a day to a full day for people generally familiar with Alfresco Java services...
