Automation Engine - Auto generate Order ID

PrintPlanet.com - 8 hours 9 min ago
We currently do not have any kind of MIS. Each job is given a number by simply adding it to a list in Microsoft Excel which automatically assigns the next number.

We’re having a trial of AE installed soon and would like it to auto generate the OrderID rather than us having to get one from our Excel jobs list.

Can this be done? I know each job in Nexus has a job ID and we were hoping for something similar. Esko said it can’t be done but we really don’t want to have to stick to using Excel just to get an Order ID from it.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a 6 digit number like we currently have. Any unique identifier would be useable.
