Blanket/Standing Order: Counter Number
In Edit Entity Settings, an administrator can specify an order number counter and optional prefix for Blanket and Standing Orders. If specified, the prefix value will default in front of all Blanket and Standing Order numbers. The Starting Order Number indicates the first default order number to be used. Users maintain the ability to override the order number default when creating a Blanket or Standing Order.
The new user interface must be enabled to use Blanket and Standing Order. Please contact Customer Support if you would like additional information.
