The ID Prefix setting enables you to specify text at the beginning of IDs with which you tag captured evidence files. This feature helps save you time and reduces ID tagging errors. For example, if the IDs used by your agency always begin with the year and a hyphen, you can specify an ID prefix value of "2016-" and eliminate the need to enter those five characters each time you tag an evidence file with an ID. When you tag a file, the ID prefix appears automatically in the ID box when you start to edit the box.
If you want to provide a prefix for the IDs that you can tag evidence files with:
- To the right of ID Prefix, tap the blank space.
- Type the characters that should appear at the beginning of all IDs.
If you want to edit or remove a prefix:
- To the right of ID Prefix, tap the prefix text.
- Edit the characters in the prefix text, as needed.
