Is there any way we can have manual input of Sales Order Reference, currently the Sales Orders are numbered automatically e.g. SO001, i know we can change the format, but is there any way that we can have them input manually e.g. 33456 as a sales order.


Even if you could enter it manually you would want to have the system check it for uniqueness before the SO is saved, and if the system isn't doing that now (which it probably isn't, a review of the code would be required to find out) then you'll have to write a module. We've considered doing this for Purchase Orders. I'll re-post if/when I know more.

Hey Kevin, thanks for the info, yeah you are right and according to my research so far, system doesnt check the uniqueness before SO is saved. in case for a new module, can you guide me to the proper way? any tutorials or links?
