When auto assigning an ID number it can be useful to begin from a seed value. Starting at 10000 ensures a uniform width for the record ID since the number of characters will always remain the same.
The Item ID settings allow for the creation of dynamic patterns which can allow for the creation of a variety of IDs. Our example allows us to start from a seed value.

Is there a condition to reset that ID number to start at 1 for example let say every 1st day of the fiscal year?

Danny: if you include the year as part of your pattern, it will do it automatically. It will always start with 1 if the rest of the pattern produces a unique new value.
