Document auto-numbering overview
What document fields can I use to build a document auto-number scheme?
You can use any, or all, of the following document fields:
- Organization Code
- Project Code
- Sequence Number
- VDR Number
- Select List 1 - 10.
You can create several auto-numbering schemes and choose which document types the schemes apply to. You don’t have to apply an auto-numbering scheme to every document type.
Learn more about document fields here: Configuring document fields for your new project.
How does it work?
When someone uploads a document into your project on Aconex they will select the relevant document type as part of the upload process.
If you have linked that document type to an auto-numbering scheme then a document number is automatically assigned to the document. The Document No field will appear as read-only to the user.
Can I change document numbers once a document auto-number has been assigned?
If you choose to use configurable document auto-numbering on an existing project, any automatically generated document number that has already been assigned to an existing document is skipped.
Can I delete an auto-numbering scheme?
No. But you can remove all document types from the scheme so that it is no longer used.
