Do you have a typical document numbering in your company, and would like to have the same in Precoro?

This feature is available for the following documents:

Warehouse request

Purchase requisition

Purchase order



How does it work?

Below are the parts numbering can contain:

  • custom text (for instance, it could be your company abbr.);
  • document creation date (for instance, MMDDYYY format);
  • department/project name or code or any other select-option you need to drag from the Document cost center;
  • location name or code;
  • symbol (for instance, "-");
  • sequential number.

How it looks like:

  • Precoro

  • PDF/XLSX document

  • The email sent to the supplier

  • Internal email

Our custom numbering PO01400026 consists of:

PO - the custom text,

01 - the location code,

40 - the project number,

0026 - the sequential number.

Can we reset the numbering?

Yes, we can

- reset once per year;

- reset once you reached a particular quantity of documents.

Please share the case with your CS manager or Support Team, and we will be glad to help you. 

Can the numbering be the same for the PR and PO, for example?

No, each document type has its own numbering. 

Can we have a different sequential numbering for various projects, locations, legal entities?

No, we don't have this possibility, but we recommend you to discuss the case with your Customer Success Manager.  

How to enable this feature?

Usually, we enable it from the backend side that might take up to 2 weeks; therefore, we recommend to brief our team as earlier as possible. 

1. Inform us which documents the customized numbering should be set for. 

2. Put the structure of the numbering you need, explaining what each part means. 

Also, include the number of digits which depends on the planned number of documents.

3. Do you want to start from 0 or continue the sequential numbering you have?

4. When do you need to reset a numbering?

5. Send the requirements to your Customer Success Manager or Support Team. 

6. Receive a deadline for implementation completion.
