Number ranges are used in many applications to generate unique identification numbers. In Carrier Connect, they are typically used for tracking numbers. Since identification numbers must be unique, you obtain an initial number range from your carrier and then request new ranges when needed. Identification numbers may not be reused arbitrarily.
The precise format of a tracking number is determined by the carrier.
- Identification or tracking numbers are composed of various alphanumeric characters – part of which is the number range (symbolized below by “N”). The GS1-128 tracking number format, for example, contains a number range indicated in bold: 003XXXXXXXNNNNNNNNNP.
Proceed as follows to edit an existing number range and set up notifications:
- You must have the role of I_CAI_EDITMASTERFILEDATA.
- Make sure that you are not printing any shipping labels for this carrier while you are editing the data.
