Numbering the project

Postby ktabri » Tue Oct 26, 2010 7:49 pm

It would be nice to have the feature allowing to assign numbers to the project. Even better if the numbering format could be defined, so that the format for example reflects the year, e.g. Project no. 2010-023, Name: Designing the tool.

It does already have the ID number.

Thank you for the answer.
This ID has several problems and it is often not usable in practical applications. For example:
1. There is no option to change the format of the ID number (ie. ID: 2010-53)
2. If you make a sub-project (or second level project) under the main project title, each sub-project will have a new ID. Thus, there is no single ID assigned to a project with sub-projects.

Therefore, i would really like a better option for project ID's, where also the sub-projects have the same ID.

I agree with the above except for the parent project to have to same id as the subproject. I'm not against it either but then the not visible id should be unique (which goes without saying).
It would be equally nice to have the project ID freely assignable (as in making an expression who does it for you in the background).

I'll put on the todo list that you can have a custom defined format like:

P%y-{id}

Where %y would be the year and {id} the auto id.

Dear Merijn,

could you please make the project numbers adaptable like the numbering of the billing module?
So to have a prefix and a postfix?
And maybe to have a configurable numbering format like A1-PJ 10001-001 (where -001 is the subproject).
And maybe to define different number ranges, e.g. one for internal projects, one for client projects and one for supplier projects?
And each subproject could get the following numbering format: A1-PJ 10001-001.
And the second child would get A1-PJ 10001-001-001.
So you know, where the Subproject belongs to.
And please consider to make the number of digits for subprojects (-001) configurable (e.g. one company need only 1 digit, others, need even more than 3 digits...).

Thanks, Markus!!!
