Reassigning Index Numbers

While reassigning index numbers it includes all collections, can each collection be kept seperate and start from 1

I’m afraid that’s not possible in the current version of Connect.

Can I ask why you need this?

Just some background information:

  • People use the Index numbers for stuff like putting stickers with a number on their books (to easily locate them in their library room). Therefor, each Index number is only used Once.
  • When a number is deleted, the next added book will still increment on the last added book.


  • If you have #s 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
  • You delete #4
  • The next book you add will automatically be #11. #4 will not return.
  • If you manually change #11 to #4, the next book you add will be #12 - so you will be missing #11.
