I can't change the automatic numbering on my folders


After changing the automatic numbering setting for folders in the settings tab, the change has not affected the folders currently in the data room.


Changing the numbering setting in the settings tab will only affect newly created folders and will not change folders already existing in the data room.


To change the numbering settings on your current folders:

  1. Go to the documents tab
  2. Right click on the directory (top level folder) you'd like to change and choose Edit Details 
  3. Change the numbering setting and schema to your liking, then click Save
