Reference Numbers

As an Administrator, you may require users to enter one, two, or three reference numbers to assist in your company's shipment tracking, accounting, or other management functions. You can use reference numbers to reflect purchase order numbers, invoice numbers, client/matter codes, department codes, cost codes, project numbers, and so forth. Then, using a specific reference category you created, you may generate business reports.

You may create reference numbers by giving them a value (letters, numbers, or alpha-numeric) and a description.

  • Example 1: Reference Number "ABC-123-NY" with description "ABC Warehouse, 123rd Street, New York."
  • Example 2: Reference Number "ACCT-LAX" with description "Accounting - Los Angeles Airport office."
  • Example 3: Reference Number "123-07-02" with description "Case 123 Jones v. State, July 2002"

Values can default to reference numbers entered in a user's shipping preferences. Those fields will automatically fill in when a shipping form is opened, and the user may keep the value or write over it.
