Order Number

Order Number

It would be nice to be able to set a starting order number. This would make it easy for existing stores to easily switch over to PowerStore without fear of duplicating previous order numbers.

It also looks better than telling a new customer that they're the very first order that the store has ever processed.

Hey OG,

That's actually a very astute request. There is nothing that kills confidence in an online store more than finding out you just placed the third order of all time...

I've logged the feature request for you.

A quick workaround to do in the meantime would be to edit the autonumber for the orders table to something higher and/or random.

Hey OG,

We opted to defer this for a later update. We tried our best, but time was running short and we didn't get the chance to add a few features that we would have loved to.

We appreciate the suggestion though, and keep an eye out for it in a future release.

OK, it's not so much a problem for those that are comfortable with going into the DB but I fear a backlash from those looking for a ready-to-go solution.

It's sort of like ordering new checks from the bank and not getting the option of starting at the next number in the sequence. The check number becomes meaningless because you now have duplicate check numbers.
