Give each EPDM project its own part numbering scheme

A few weeks ago I was at a customer’s site where they wanted each of their projects files to have their own serial number. i.e. They wanted part numbers for project “A” to be “0010”, “0011”, “0012”, “0013”, etc. and part numbers for project “B” to “10456”, “10457”, “10458”… [Not the file name, just the part number.] Each of their customers had their own part number schema that they were to follow. My first thought was to make a new […]

Last week I showed you that you could use PigeonHole for smarter drop lists in your EPDM data cards. PigeonHole also has the ability to put EPDM serial numbers into your cards.

The user will see this choice, in this format, when picking from the list, but the choice will be converted […]
