It's very difficult to maintain sequence numbers when creating vendor master and customer master.

    Dear Team,


    I am telling the scenario

    In one warehouse where they last created vendor ID 111233

    Then in the second warehouse, they want to create a vendor ID 111234 but they want to check the last created vendor ID only they can create the vendor. like the multiple warehouses, they won't check the ID which one last number. If it is automatic vendor ID creation the user doesn't worry about the vendor ID sequence


    You are talking about the total number of vendors that do not use vendor ID creations

    Still, you are not clear means you can call me I will explain why we need the automatic ID creations.

    Hello Lakshmi,

    In this scenario, as previously stated, determining the total number of vendors is a straightforward task by inspecting the bottom right corner of the vendor master list view. Reviewing the overall count of vendors created to date is a manageable task for users. Furthermore, users can easily customize the vendor ID to align with their preferences.

    Dear Team,

    If the Client has Four or five warehouses every time a new vendor comes they want to maintain vendor ID numbers in sequence order here the problem occurs every time the end user wants to check the vendor ID number last creation.

    Hello Lakshmi,

    Please provide us with the problem statement faced by the client due to lack of automatic vendor/customer id creation. We would be needing solid use case in order to brainstorm and finally transform the idea into feature.

    Dear Team,

    We can use an alias field for this

    if a user has vendors from different cities, they can assign IDs reflecting the city (e.g., DELV1 for Delhi, BANV1 for Bangalore).

    Dear Lakshmi,

    Allowing users to manually input Vendor/Customer IDs is a valuable feature that enables users to customize IDs based on their specific requirements for vendors and customers. This manual ID assignment facilitates easy identification of vendors or customers in the future. For instance, if a user has vendors from different cities, they can assign IDs reflecting the city (e.g., DELV1 for Delhi, BANV1 for Bangalore).

    If someone wants to create Vendor/Customer ID sequence wise, then also they can easily know the number of vendors/customers already in the system and they can assign new vendor/customer id according to that.

    This flexibility ensures that users can assign new IDs based on their business use case, offering a more intuitive and open approach compared to system-defined numbers or IDs.


    If you feel that some business use case is being missed with this feature, please let us know the same with valid reasons.

    We understand what you are asking for but we would be needing solid use cases or problem statements being faced by clients before proceeding with this requirement.

    Dear Team,


    when creating a new vendor or customer Id should come automatically but now we want to put manually for every customer and vendor master

    Dear Team

    Hello Lakshmi,

    Total no. of customers/vendors could be easily known by looking at bottom right corner of list view of vendor/customer.

    If there's another business use case related to this idea, please let us know in the portal comments here.

    Also, we have an idea existing for similar requirement, we would suggest you to go through it once https://ginesys.aha.io/ideas/ideas/GIN-I-4734

    Dear Team,

    when I am creating a vendor or customer master I can't remember the last vendor or customer ID to maintain the sequence number of vendor master customer master.

    Kindly provide detailed information on the challenges encountered during Vendor/Customer creation in the portal comments within the next three days. Failure to do so may result in the classification of this suggestion as unlikely to be implemented.
