Ordernumbers for WooCommerce

We are currently unable to provide proper support!

For the last few months we have been very busy working on some huge, very time-consuming and time-sensitive projects, so our support was very limited and we were unable to provide proper support in our forums! We now have a huge backlog of requests from our customers, which we are trying to clear bit by bit. Unfortunately, this takes longer than we anticipated, so our response time is not yet up to par. We are trying our best to improve this situation as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

Dear Reinhold,
Great plugin and very helpful when using concurrent counters; just set it up and working fine, but have a special need which I would like to ask about.
I am using Yith Multivendor plugin, which creates a suborder within an order for each vendor; this makes the counters take both order and suborder as if they were two different orders, so the counter increases accordingly; i.e. if an order has 5 products of 5 different vendors, instead of increasing 1 sequential number, it increases 5.
Do you have any idea of how I could manage this condition?
I have been thinking about it and maybe just using "Suborders" as a new custom variable could be a solution. The custom variable "Suborders > 0 -> different counter" would create a counter for suborders and do not interfere with orders counters.
What do you think about it? Is it a possible solution or do you think there is any other way of managing this?
Thanks a lot in advance!!
Best regards! Pablo

Dear PSturzer,
Thanks for noticing this issues. In the current version of the plugin there is indeed no way to work around this issue easily.

Your approach of a custom variable is also the one we'll choose to fix it. In the next release (no release date yet determined), we'll add a custom variable [issuborder], which you can use to set a different number format. See open-tools.net/documentation/advanced-or...merce.html#suborders (the documentation is already updated to the yet-to-be-released version containing the feature).

Best regards,
Reinhold
