How can I randomize order IDs in my online store?

Hi there,

At my recently open online shop I have noticed that orders start by #1001 and on, I don't really like that and would like it to be more random and professional, like date of order, which would be okey plus couple of digits or similar that would give a unique order for at least 99 orders per day, could it be possible?

 

I have been trying to find some similar questions but not able to land on a definitive method or way to make it possible.

 

If so, could you please help and show how to do it?

 

Thanks!

Thanks, I have already found that and my guess is not clear what is this feature doing, the only two options of prefix or suffix may not be enough though, perhaps it is me I don't know what to do or how?

My idea is to choose from other possible or available options like choose by order date, for example today's: #20240420-01. Maybe? 

Adding two last numerals would give the option of astonishing 99 possible orders per day, which I find light years ahead but will do the job.

 

Perhaps there could be other options?
