Add a starting number for your bookings, estimates, invoices, and inquiries
If you are a new company and you don’t have any previous customers or bookings; and you don’t want the first booking in your company to appear to your customers as BOK-1. Therefore, you can add a starting number for your bookings, estimates, invoices, and inquires. To do so:
- Go to Settings
- Select General Settings
- Select Booking Settings
- Click on Starting number page
- Enter the number you want your bookings, estimates, invoices and inquiries to start with
- Press Save
If you choose 400 ,for example, as the starting number for your bookings, then the first booking will be numbered BOK-400; and the second will be 402 and so on. This can encourage the customer to book with you when noticing that amount of previous bookings. If you put your starting booking number to be 400 and you already had 13 bookings ,for example, then the next booking will be 400+13: that is 413.
You have to be aware that you only can specify starting number once in a lifetime to prevent future number duplication. So once you enter the starting number and save it you cannot change it after that.
