How to Insert Serial Number Prefix Automatically When Completing PWO?
There are two ways to set serial number auto-prefix for two types of situations: system level serial number prefix and production work order level serial number prefix.
- For system level serial number prefix, there is a setting for Serial Number Prefix in Tab "Admin Settings".
If you set "1111" as the prefix and allow auto-generation of SN, every time you complete a PWO, you will receive the serialized items, whose serial numbers start with “1111”, such as 11110012, 11110013, 11110014….
- In another case, set serial number prefix for particular PWO. You may have more than one SN prefix, then you will NEVER set "allow auto generation of SN".
First, in Admin Settings Tab, go to “Serialization Settings” field.
Leave the “Prefix” blank and make sure the box for "allow auto generation" is NO. Save it.
Second, on PWO header, fill the fields like below.
“PATT” is the prefix. Starting Serial Number is 1, which means when you complete PWO, the first one completed will be PATT1.
Then, when you complete PWO, you will get the following screen:
Serial Numbers are generated with prefix automatically.
