The best way to solve the 'no delete, but also no duplicates'-problem is to add a timestamp to the value that you would like to set.
To do this, use the Get Current DateTime String action:
Subsequently, concatenate this value with the string you want ("Plan"):
Finally, use the Set Value action with the concatenated string that is returned from step 2:
(Of course, if you want a unique number before the string, just switch fields 1 and 2 in the Concatenate String action.

Yes this is possible, there are Actions available (called Random String and Random Number) that generate random strings with specifiable pre- or postfixes and length, or random numbers within a range of choice.
Does anyone have a screen capture of how to set a random string in a textBox field?
I am testing a portion of our software, that doesn't allow duplicates, but we also aren't allowed to delete anything.
I can't seem to get my test case to run successfully more than once.
What I intend to have here is a Plan name generated starting with "plan" in my set value, then prefixing by 01. My assumption is that it goes on up from there...
But clearly i did something wrong.
