When you create a project you can define the code yourself or have it generated automatically. For automatic numbering there are two options:
1. Systemwide for all projects
To do this you can activate the system parameter Project Use Auto Numbering in the section Other in the System Settings. All new project will be coded according to the format yymm. Example: when a project is created in august 2012 the code will be 12080001 and the next 12080002 and so forth.
2. For each project template
This option only applies for projects that are created based on a template. To use this option you can add the string 'AUTONUM#' to the code of the template project. Everything character before 'AUTONUM#' is a prefix. The # defines the number of positions. Example: P-AUTONUM4 returns the numbers P-0001, P-0002 and so forth.
