This tool allows the system administrator to set up the rules for system generated numbers. It is is to be used only by system administrator and is NOT to be used by regular users every time they generate an accession number. The regular users would see the system generated numbers as inline editable texts.

Discussion from June All-hands:

There should be a mechanism to allow for creation and reservation of numbers.

Pattern number builder - initial interface.

User clicks in field to bring up pattern-number builder.

User drags and drops elements from builder to create pattern. The user may also name the pattern.

User can add a separate "item" number element to the pattern.

User can add a separate "part" number element to the pattern.

User can choose which type of "part" s/he is describing.

User can add a different style of "type" number to the pattern.

The pattern builder uses color to indicate a new "type" number is being added.
