1. Creation of a Numerator

Numerators are important to number each document issued after a payment. To create a document numerator click on Settings -> Document Numerators -> Add Numerator.

Every type of document has to be linked with a numerator. The same numeration can apply to various document types or it is possible to create a numerator for each document template. To link a numerator with a document template, please click here for instructions.

Each numerator requires:

  • name of the numerator (e.g. Invoice, Receipt);
  • format of the numerator: it can include "Number" and "Sequence". These values will be automatically replaced by the number of the document issued and the name of the sequence (for example the year the document was issued); Example of format: doc.1/2020
    1. place your cursor in the blank box and click on the left button of the mouse
    2. type "doc." and press the space key on your keyboard
    3. click on the Number tag
    4. type "/"
    5. click on the Sequence tag
  • sequence name of the numerator: e.g.: 2020 (current year). This field is mandatory.

2. How to Edit a Numerator

To edit an existing numerator click on Edit 

editable fields:

  • name of the numerator
  • format of the numerator
  • sequence name (click on Edit as shown in the picture below)
  • last generated number (click on Edit as shown in the picture below)


don't forget to click on Save Changes!

Please note that numerators cannot be deleted. If a numerator is not necessary or it has been created by mistake, it will be sufficient to avoid linking it with a document template.

3. How to Start a New Numeration

In the same way you can also reset each numerator at the beginning of a new season.


The system will also require a new sequence name.

4. User Case

Fixed-length number

If the number for documents need have a fixed length, it will be necessary to edit the number tag in the box for the numerator format. The tag is usually inserted with this code: {MT:NUMBER}
If for example the number must have a maximum of 6 digits, it will be necessary to type a number of 0 equal to the digits desired: {MT:NUMBER:000000}, resulting in 000001, 000002, etc.
