Mark patterns

Marks are unique signs of the business elements used for their unique identification

Marks are generated according to the patterns defined of them here in this section. Marks create unique sequence and fulfil conditions of the accounting or documentation management rules for control of the complete document lines.

Each business object (task, information, decision) has its own pattern.

How to create marks

When area can be used only for some types of elements it does not require pattern for all elements. You can add pattern for new elements using the Renew button and then udpate newly created records and delete those, that makes no sense in this area.

Tags used in marks

Click the edit button to edit singe pattern. You can use pattern elments:

  • @counter – count elements from one up
  • @year – get four digit year number to the mark
  • @month – get 2 digit month number to the mark
  • @day – insert number of the day
  • @user – insert user. It is usable only for elements linked with user (task)
  • @amark – Shortcut from area – Fix value set in the area. If not defined value from superordinate area is used. Do not forget to set the value, if not set X symbol is used in generated marks.

Apart of the tags any letters can be used.
Some objects might support object-specific tags that are not common. Check object documentation or request system support if special tag is needed.

Creates marks:


Do not forget, that system does not control uniqueness if counter is not part of the pattern. Counter is not requisite, because for many not-too-frequent element date is more easy to read:


This mark creates every day a unique mark but if ever occurs more than a single instance in a day, their mark will be equal.

Object marks affects object behaviour

According to the settings, marks affect the system behaviour. Primarily, objects with marks cannot be deleted.

Owner of the area could delete all marks – but only all not a single one. This functionality supports complete delete of the area and the area or project should be invalid before that. The limit blocks deleting the marked objects but without that system cannot guarantee the object control based on the complete line of marks.

User-defined object marks

Marks could be set as editable – if set, mark is an optional user-defined field. It is not filled until user set it but when once is set, it cannot be modified. However, system does not guarantee, that user-defined marks are unique.

User-defined marks are intended for case when AyMINE contains objects that have its own unique mark defined by another system and transferred manually. However, we recommend using services for system synchronisation.
