Number Series - POS Invoices

Whenever you enter a new POS Invoice, it will be given a unique identifying number based on a sequential number series.

You can have more than one sequential number series running at the same time, or at different times. For example, you may want to use different sequences to represent different departments, or you may want to use different sequences to represent different fiscal or calendar years.

The Number Series - POS Invoices setting allows you to take advantage of this feature. Here you can define the number sequences that you would like to use with POS Invoices.

To open the Number Series - POS Invoices setting, ensure you are in the Point of Sales module and double-click (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap (iOS/Android) 'Number Series - POS Invoices' in the 'Settings' list. The following window will appear:

Enter each new Number Series on the first blank line. The Comment will be shown in the 'Paste Special' list, so enter some text that will help you choose a number from the correct sequence. The N/L field common to all Number Series settings is not used with POS Invoices.

When the setting is complete, click the [Save] button (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap √ (iOS/Android) in the Button Bar to save the changes. To close the window without saving changes, click the close box (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap < (iOS/Android).

When you enter a POS Invoice, the next number in the first valid Number Series entered to this setting will be used as a default. There will be no opportunity to change the default number in these records, so a typical use for this setting will be to create separate number sequences for each year.

If you leave the Number Series - POS Invoices setting empty, POS Invoice Numbers will all be taken from the same sequence, starting at 1 and continuing consecutively.

If you have any tills that use live-sync connections to the server, you must not leave the Number Series - POS Invoices setting empty. You must also use the Synchronised Number Series setting to define separate number sequences for each live-sync till, before connecting any of those tills to the server. Please refer here for details. Also, do not specify number sequences for POS Invoices in the Person records (on the 'Number Series' card) of any users who will enter POS Invoices on tills with live-sync connections to the server.
