Setting up the extension
Please refer to our general Extension Installation and Setup Guide for installation instructions.
To enable and configure the module, go to System > Configuration > XTENTO Extensions > Order Number Customizer. Make sure to enter your license key and enable the module there.
The configuration section is located at System > Configuration > XTENTO Extensions > Order Number Customizer.
There are four separate, but from the configuration almost identical sections for order number, invoice number, shipment number and credit memo number settings.
|Enable Custom Number||If disabled, no custom number format will be used for this entity. This can be enabled/disabled on a per-website and per-store view level.|
|Number Format||This is the format which will be used for order/invoice/... numbers. You can use letters, numbers as well as variables. For a list of variables, please see below. Always make sure your order/invoice/... numbers are unique somehow. It is recommended to at least use the %counter% variable in the order number to avoid duplicate order numbers, as this variable is unique and incrementing.|
|Counter: Start counting from||This is the %counter% variable that can be used in the custom number format field above. This configures from which number the %counter% variable begins counting. If you use "Reset counter", the %counter% variable will start from the value entered here after being reset.|
|Counter: Increment by||If set to 1, the %counter% variable increases by 1 for every new transaction made. If set to 7, the %counter% variable increases by 7 for every new transaction made.|
|Counter: Number Padding||If you want the %counter% variable to be 6 digits long with zeros at the beginning of the counter, enter 6 in this field. For example if the counter is at 12, it would output 000012 then, so it's always a 6 digit number (6 is the padding).|
|Counter: Reset counter automatically||How often should the %counter% variable be reset? Make sure to have dynamic parts (like the date) in the number format to avoid duplicate order/invoice/... numbers!|
|Counter: Force counter reset now||If set to "Yes", the %counter% variable will be reset when the next increment ID is generated and will then deactivate this option automatically. This means the %counter% variable is just reset for the next increment ID.|
Special fields for invoice/shipment/credit memo settings:
|Same as order number||If enabled, the invoice/shipment/credit memo number will use the order number the transaction belongs to, which means the number used for this transaction is the same as the order number.|
|Prefix||The prefix entered here will be added in front of the number/ID. If the order number is 2014-1245, and you enter INV- as the prefix, the new ID will be INV-2014-1245|
|Replace||If you want to replace something in the order number (which will be used as the new ID/number), you can enter it here. If your order number is ORD-1234 you can enter ORD- here and ORD- would then be replaced when used as the new ID/number.|
The following variables can be used in the number format:
- %d% (day of the month, no leading 0)
- %dd% (day of the month, 2 digits always)
- %m% (month of the year, no leading 0)
- %mm% (month of the year, 2 digits always)
- %yy% (current year, 2 digits)
- %yyyy% (current year, 4 digits)
- %h% (current time: hour, no leading 0)
- %hh% (current time: hour, 2 digits always)
- %ii% (current time: minute, 2 digits always)
- %ss% (current time: seconds, 2 digits always)
- %store_id% (Store ID the order was placed in)
- %counter% (An incrementing number, configuration below)
- %rand3% (Random number between 100 and 999)
- %rand4% (Random number between 1000 and 9999)
- %rand5% (Random number between 10000 and 99999)
- %rand6% (Random number between 100000 and 999999)
- %rand7% (Random number between 1000000 and 9999999)
- %rand8% (Random number between 10000000 and 99999999)
- %rand9% (Random number between 100000000 and 999999999)
Always make sure your order/invoice/shipment/credit memo numbers are unique. If the generated ID already exists, Magentos internal / default increment ID will be used as the increment ID.
- I can't find the configuration section: Please go through the setup guide once again to make sure the extension has been installed.
- I can't enable the extension: Please make sure you're using a valid license key. Read further
No custom order/invoice/etc. numbers are used
- This can have multiple reasons: Order/invoice/... number exists already, or the extension hasn't been enabled.
Skipped order numbers
This is not an "issue". It is Magento core logic. Explanation can be found here: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/37444
