Project ID Prefix

In which Wildbook did the issue occur?
What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79)
What is your role on the site? (admin, researcher, etc)
What happened?
I’ve deleated all the encounters from a project, then added a new batch of photos to the same project. The ID for my first individual should be …-0000, but it countinues the counting from the old, deleated (but ID-ed) encounters: …-0008, …-0009 and so on.

I suspect this may be intentional, but let me verify with my teammates and I’ll get back to you.

HI @KirilKValchev

I forgot to clarify: When you said that you deleted your encounters, did you also mean that you deleted all of the encounters associated with a Marked Individual?

If encounters still exist for a Marked Individual, their page and ID should still be unavailable to be re-used by another animal of the same species.

To be honest I’m not so sure, but I think, I’ve deleted all of them. Either way, I’ve created a new project and the ID-prefix starts from 0000.
I don’t want to take up any more of your time with this.
Thanks for the response! I appreciate it!
