Set ID and Envelope Number Options

You can select how to display and assign ID/Envelope numbers for families.

  1. On the File menu, click Setup > ID Number Options.
  2. Select an option for displaying second IDs in the Families window.
  3. To allow PDS users view the second ID number but not change it, select Don't Allow Changes.
    Tip: If you sync information with your diocese, you may want to select this since dioceses often reference the second ID.
  4. To automatically assign family ID/Envelope numbers or second ID numbers, select the checkbox, and enter the number that you want to start with.
  5. Click Save/OK.
