Can I use my own PO number?

PO numbers cannot be overridden but you can reference an internal number in the Reference or PO Notes fields.

PO numbers are automatically generated with each project starting at #1. You can customize the PO number format across the company in Workflows or at the project level (for example, use the project# as the PO prefix: 123456-1), but you cannot override the PO# with your own internal number.

We recommend referencing your internal # in the Reference or PO Notes fields on the PO. Both options give you the option to display the information on the PO or not.

  • An advantage to using the Reference field is that it will display on the PO Processing dashboard, and you can use the filters to search by Reference.
