-- HikaShop version -- : 4.0.3

i want to suggest the option to set a fixed numerical value when the feature "Invoice number reset frequency" is turned on.

i want to start on very reset on a higher number, for example a fixed number, lets say 55. so if my order and invoice id number resets very year the first invoice number of the next year would be 56.
right now i have to modify the database to get this done. would it be possible to extend the reset feature with such a option?
I think that would be a simplification.

Hi,

That seems really specific to your needs.
Why not setup a mass action with a trigger "on before order update", with a filter on the order_invoice_id column being 1 and an action "update the values" on that same column with the value 56 (and I suppose an action on the order_invoice_number to update it as well) ?
That way you would get that done automatically, without having us add an extra option almost no one would use.

sounds interesting and would be ok for me. but does this mass action only take action when the order_invoice_id is 1. do i have understand this right?

Hi,

That's right. That's because when the reset occurs, the next order invoice id is 1 again. And thus you can catch it at that point and set it to the value you want.
