  • If you are only need a column with auto-number field just modify the view and add ID column – SharePointer Sep 15 '17 at 20:44

in SharePoint every list item have a property called Id. Which is always incremental. You can use it to solve your problem using below method:

  1. Create a workflow, set it to run on Item created.
  2. In workflow, add statement set field in current item.
  3. In the first item select the desired field i.e. Title field.
  4. In value section click on value and then click on button having ... value. Now the string builder will open up. Add the Title column and ID column separated by -.

Thats it, your work is done. WF looks like following.
