Platinum currently generates a new sales order number each time you revise a "Vehicle Sales" order, the idea being you always know what version of an order you're dealing with from the order number.
From user feedback however it is apparent that keeping the same sales order number from the initial version through to that ready to invoice is more suitable for the way some businesses operate.
To allow this then, a new system parameter has been added to "Vehicle Sales" -> "Maintenance Options" -> "Parameters" -> "Invoicing - General". The parameter is named "Retain Sales Order Number" and if set to 'Y', a new sales order number will only be fetched off the system stack when a new sales order is raised.
- This only affects Sales Orders. Quotation and Invoice numbering remain unchanged.
