Project Numbering Sequence _ cannot start anywhere but 000

In which Wildbook did the issue occur? ACW

What operating system were you using? (eg. MacOS 10.15.3) WIn 10

What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79) Chrome

What is your role on the site? (admin, researcher, etc) Admin

What happened?
Deleted a project (see support request) and when I went to recreate the Project and restart the numbering sequence ###4 it appeared that system forces restart at 0000

What did you expect to happen?
Numbering to start at the number in the hash list ###4
What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?
Try to start a Project numbering sequence

FYI @ACWadmin1

So the #s after the project increment ID prefix simply designate how many numerical orders of magnitude the user might want to eventually increment in their project (i.e., # represents 0-9, while ## represents 0-99, and ### represents 0-999).
It looks like anything to the right of the #s will just be counted as additional orders of magnitude.

As far as I know, there’s no way to set a brand new project up to start numbering at an arbitrary number.

Does that answer your question?

Hi Mark

That answers the question. I guess we will have to fake it til we make it…
