Document ID Service Enabled, But the Document ID Column Does Not Appear

You enable the document ID service on a site collection and go into document ID settings to set an ID for all documents on the site collection, but no document ID appears when you view properties.

I had to do all of these things before the document ID column appeared:
  1. Enable the feature on the site collection.
    1. Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Site Collection Features -> Document ID Service.  Activate.
  2. Start the Document ID feature
    1. Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Document ID settings.
    2. Check the Assign Document IDs checkbox and click on OK.
  3. Adjust the default content type read/write.
    1. Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Content Type Publishing
    2. Check the box for Refresh all published content types on next update, click on OK.
  4. Run some Timer Jobs in Central Administration
    1. Central Administration -> Monitoring -> Review Job Definitions
    2. Change the view to Web Application and choose the Web application that contains the site where you want to see the document ID service
    3. Run: Content Type Subscriber
    4. Run: Document ID enable/disable job
    5. Run: Document ID assignment job
Disclaimer: I was experimenting when I was researching and compiled this from multiple blogs and microsoft pages.  It is possible that you will have to adjust the order of the running the jobs in central admin.  Let me know if you find that you have to run things in a different order than listed above.
