Auto-Numbering allows you to quickly locate and track your work by automatically generating unique ID numbers on projects and requests.
To enable auto-numbering, navigate to Account Settings by selecting your avatar in the bottom of the global navigation bar. From the Settings sub-navigation menu under General, select Auto-Numbering.
Simply click the green toggle to the right of the Auto-Numbering setting to turn this feature on. When disabled, the toggle will appear grey. You can update these preferences at any time.
Once selected, you will have the option to turn on auto-numbering for Projects and Requests. Identify the number you would prefer to Start Numbering From, as well as the Minimum Digits you desire for your auto-numbering settings.
In the example below, Projects will start from the number 1, and will include at minimum 3 digits; therefore, the first project will be numbered at 001. Projects will start with 2 leading zeroes in this case; however, the moment the project reaches 1000, there will no longer be any leading zeroes and the number continues to increase as normal.
Auto-numbers cannot be used twice, meaning there could not be two projects with the number 100. The system will validate that if an attempt is made to change the starting number, as it cannot be set to be before the latest auto-number that has been used.
Project and Request numbers can be found under ID within the Project or Request Details section.
Project and Request numbers can also be found below the Project or Request Name within your Project or Request list view.
Project and Request numbers are not retroactive. Auto-numbering will start with the first Project and/or Request created once this feature is turned on.
Project and Request numbers can be searched via the Global Search feature.
