New asbestos sample/item "auto-numbering" options coming soon

Do you use the AutoNumber button on our "Survey Items" screen?

Do you have clients who want you to number each item you record using a numbering scheme of their choosing?

If the answer to either of these questions is "yes", read on!

New option coming soon to the AutoNumber button?

We've decided to extend what our AutoNumber button does.  Currently, clicking this button will assign a number to each item in an asbestos survey, but always starting always at "1".  Naturally, Alpha Tracker has a unique identifying number for every item and this is always assigned when your surveyor sends their data back to the server - but the AutoNumber button is a popular feature where consultancies want reports to have items numbered 1, 2, 3.. etc.

The new functionality behind the button will allow you to start the numbering from any number, not just 1.  In particular, if you have clients who give you a batch of numbers and want you to take numbers from a range, the new features in AutoNumber will allow you to do this, completely automatically.

Do get in touch with Elaine if you want more info - we'd be delighted to hear from you!
