I'm super new to airtable and I've been searching for the answer to this and I can't seem to find what I am looking for- likely because I don't know the right terminology but I have a table in my base and I want the primary field to auto populate each new record with a number and the year the record was created so that if there are multiple years I can filter them easily later.

I figure it's some sort of formula because I know how to make the field auto number, but I can't figure out the formula to do it. 

Thanks in advance Amy
