Marketpress Order Numbers

Hi Guys,

Just a question really. Is the format of an order number fixed, and if so do you think it will ever be configurable?

Our accountant is asking for something like:
YYYYMMDD-ORDER NUMBER FOR THE DAY
i.e. 20110302-1

At the moment they are a 12 digit hex? and a bit hard on the eyes. I suspect there may be a good reason for it, so just wanted to understand the intention better.

Thanks!

    Thanks Aaron. The reasoning was what I was after. Since we don't want to restrict orders from non-members, and we want those non-members to be able to check back on their order-status, it makes sense that we would want the order numbers to be random.

    Shorter would be better, but not critical by any stretch.

    Thanks again.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
