Overview

You can prefix the purchase order so you can better indentify orders relating to different Business Units. 

1

Head to Business > Settings and the Formatting area. 

Under the Purchase Order Number format you can add in a prefix

 

 
You can add the Project / Job code into the order number as well here.

You can also set a Division prefix in Division Settings.

Recognition Consideration

Our advice is to keep it simple. Avoid a Pre-fix of say PO because the OCR engine might struggle to differentiate between an O and a 0 (zero). Use prefixes that are easy to recognise and aren’t similar to a number.
