[Histonet] Question about accessioning outside consult cases

We are in the process of switching to AP Beaker and in the midst of the build.    My question involves how others are handling outside consult surgical and/or cytology cases.   Do you assign them an unique number that identifies them as a consult as opposed to an inside case - SO20-XXXX verses S20-XXXX?     We currently assign them as just another surgical case but I know some places do have outside consult designations.

What is everyone doing?

Thanks in advance for your input.
