Flexible Account Number Format
It would be nice to be able to define different (shorter) account number formats (for loans/savings account) and also the client/group/center IDs.
you can modify the source code to generate shorter account numbers

This has come up multiple times. There is already an external ID field for (I think) loans, savings and clients that can be appropriated. Either way, this should be an additional field and not replace Mifos's internal IDs.
What would help is for members to post their account numbering scheme to ensure the devs build something as flexible as possible.
* Is the number auto-incremented or does it follow a system? What's that system?
* Do clients/groups/centers ID's ever change?
the more information we get, the better the feature could be.
