Order ID - Configuration and Use

The order ID is an auto-incremented number that is assigned when an order is placed, and which provide it with a unique reference.

Its format can be configured by the Administrator of the system in Settings > Reference numbers, by the mean of placeholders (example: format "O-{year}-{yearid}" creates O-2011-1, O-2011-2...). It can also be manually allocated by project managers.

  • Defining the order ID format: 

Note that by default, the system will not automatically assign an order ID, as the manual allocation is set (see screenshot below).

By clicking on the 'info' link, the administrator will see the list of placeholders that he can use to define the ID format.


  • Retrieving the order ID information

The ID is shown in the 'Order details' page:

The ID cannot be edited by clients. However, an internal user with the necessary access rights can modify it if needed.

Managers can modify the columns displayed in the 'Orders' and 'Projects' pages so as to display this information.
