Here, at Superfaktura, we try to do things the simple way and this is also reflected in our sequencer – the system that takes care of invoice numbering. However, many of you have their own ways of invoice numbering and would like to stick with them. Therefore, we have given you an option to number the invoices the way you like and maybe even improve it a little bit. :)
Today a new version of Superfaktura, which adds customizable invoice numbering, has been put in place. Since today your able to use your own abbreviations, prefixes, suffixes, insert a number of a year or a month and even have unlimited number of digits in your invoice number. On top of that, you can choose whether the numbering should restart every month or if it should be continuous throughout the whole year.
The custom invoice numbering can be selected from “Your profile” > “Application settings” by choosing “Other” in “Numbering format” and by entering your new invoice numbering format.
In the numbering format – the “mask” – you can use the following symbols that will be replaced by real values once the invoice is created:
RRRR – year 4 digits
RR – year 2 digits
MM – month
C – number of the invoice
Following are the examples of “masks” and the resulting outcomes.
FA-RRRR/CCCC = FA-2012/0001
123RRRRCCC = 1232012001
RR-MM-CCC = 12-04-001
As Stan Lee once said and even Uncle Ben told Spiderman “With great power comes great responsibility”, therefore, use your customizable numbering wisely and remember that sometimes less is more :)
