Expand the amount of characters for a job number

In our company we use the customers PO as our job number to be able to track the job easily around the shop.  Some of our customers PO's are 10 characters long, so when entering it as a job number we have to start leaving off some of the first characters of the PO and then if it has assemblies attached to it, it can be a mess and it starts to get confusing for the employees.  It would be most help to expand the amount of character's from 10 to 20.  Thanks for your consideration.

    This is still an issue, now that the Job characters were extended to allow more but any sub assembly job still has 10 character limit which needs to be extended as well.

    Sorry for the miss on this request. Job ID's were extended to 30 characters in JobBOSS 12.1.

    I totally agree with this. Even 2 years later and this is still a problem.
