When orders are placed in Skyline and order number is created to represent that order in the system. You can modify the format of the order number to match a system you already have in place in your print room. The order number can include specific fields, for example the year or the portal name. You can also include your own text string in an order number format.

infoNote: If you want to change the start number of your orders, please refer to the section on specifying the starting order numbers.

To amend the order number format:

1.Log in with Administrator rights and go to Admin.
2.In the Portals section click Portal Configuration.
Portals-PortalConfiguration
3.Find Ordering - Order Number Mask in the list.
4.To amend this option click Icon-Pencil. Enter the relevant mask. The options are:
[#####] where each # represents a digit of the order number with leading zeros.
[OrderNumber] the order number is shown with no leading zeros.
[Date] the order number can include the date the order was placed. For example, [#####] [Date] would display the order number with leading zeros, followed by a space then the date the order was placed.
[Year] [Month] and [Day] will be replaced by the vales of the year, month and day the order was placed.
[PortalName] will be replaced by the name of the portal where the order was placed, and [PortalName,n] will be replaced by the first n characters of the portal name.
Any other characters entered in the Order Number mask will be shown as is. For example [PortalName,2]-[######] /[Year]/[Month] would be replaced by Sk-000234 /2010/03 if the portal name was Skyline, the next order number was 234 and the order was placed in March 2010.
Any other text can be added to the order number simply by typing it in the order number mask. For example, ABC[#####],[PortalName] would create an order number ABC00123, Skyline if the portal name was Skyline.
5.Click Icon-Save to save the setting.
