I am a new user with a free plan on ERPNext.com
I browsed through and was able to setup most of the things on my own and found the application simple to use. I use ERPNext primarily for accounts module to generates sales invoices. My question here is- the serial number generated is numerical+incremental. So for an example when I create an invoice on 1st of July 2016 - my first invoice gets number 1.
20160701 - 1
20160702 - 2
20160707 - 3
20160709 - 4
Which is quite systematic but now I have clients who come and up and ask me that they need an invoice on an earlier date. Like
20160703 - 5
20160704 - 6
My Chartered Accountant is not accepting this. He says you can’t create present bill number in past dates. So now, I am looking for a solution to this issue.
One thing that clicks me is- adding customer code before invoice number for an example-
Customer- Rajeshwari Collection
Example client code (it can be anything)- RC001
Invoice dated 20160701
so now next time when I create Rajeshwari Collection’s invoice, the number should be
And if I have another client
Customer- Shakti Traders
Example client code (it can be anything)- ST002
coming on the same day asking for invoice the number should be
Is this possible?
