Field Option

Is Required?

Description

Start Value

Required

This is the number you wish to start with. For example, if you want to start with order number 5, you would enter that value.

Increment Value

Required

This is the number you wish to increase by. If you would like your orders to be sequential (ie 5, 6, 7, etc.) you will leave the value of 1. If instead you'd like to skip a few numbers (ie 5, 10, 15, etc.) you can set the value of 5. Increment values can be anywhere from 1-20.

Minimum Length

Required

This is the minimum length of your number. For example, if you want your order number to be at least a 6-digit code but you've set your starting number to 5, your order number will be "000005".

Prefix

Optional

This will be whatever comes before your order number. This field supports alphanumerics, hyphens and date variables using the handlebars partials system. Please see below for date variables.

Suffix

Optional

This will be whatever follows your order number. This field supports alphanumerics, hyphens and date variables using the handlebars partials system. Please see below for date variables.

📘

Include timestamps in custom order numbers

You may include placeholders for timestamps in your custom order numbers if desired.

{YYYY} – This will generate the four-digit year.

{YY} – This will generate a two-digit year.

{MM} – This will generate a two-digit month.

{DD} – This will generate a two-digit day.

An example of three custom order numbers with a start value of 5, an increment of 5, a minimum length of 6, a prefix of {YYYY}{DD}{MM}- and a suffix of -KO placed on March 15th, 2019 will appear as:

  • First Order – 20191503-000005-KO
  • Second Order – 20191503-000010-KO
  • Third Order – 20191503-000015-KO
