How To Set The Next Item Number

January 2023: the current dashboard release has new graphics and some interface changes. Many screenshots still reflect the older release and will be updated shortly.

There may be cases where you want to set, or reset, the next automatic item number used when adding new items. There is an option in the main Items Dashboard for this.

Edit Item# Options


The system will attempt to use the Next assigned item# field value as the next automatically generated item#.


If the value set for the "Next assigned item#" is already in use, Auctria will look for the next free number to use in place of the one entered.


If a numeric value is manually entered when you are adding a new item that value +1 will be used to update the Next assigned item#.
