Hello, just curious is there a way to create a new sku for a product that you are creating in the back end or only an item title?

You can also use the bulk editor to achieve your SKU edits even faster: 


You also get to decide the formatting for the SKU. We have some great tips on selecting your SKU format here. It's important to keep a format that is simple and understandable in your reports.
