Work Order Number Formatting

Last Updated January 23rd, 2018 by Becca Ellig

Each Work Order is given a number. This is how you customize your Number Formatting.

How to customize Work Order Number Formatting:

  1. Navigate to Settings.
  2. Click on Work Order Settings from the Maintenance settings.
  3. Enter your customizations. See below for help with some of the fields.
  4. Click Submit.

Custom Number

You can set your Work Order Numbers to appear in your own format. We've given you a few different codes to help you customize.

  • {COUNT}: Will count up from your Initial Count Value. This must always be included.
  • {DD}: Will display the current day number.
  • {MM}: Will display the current month number.
  • {YYYY}: Will display the current year.

You can use any combination of the above codes as long as you always include the Count and limit it to 25 characters long. To use multiple, just add each code. Example: W#{COUNT}-{DD}{MM}{YYYY}.

All work order numbers can still be edited in Work Order creation if you need something outside of this format.

Tip: Use the Number Preview box to see how your numbers will end up looking with your customizations.

Length of Counter

This will set how many digits are displayed in the counter.

Initial Count Value

Set what number you want your work orders to start at. Each work order number after the first one will count up from the Initial Count Value.
