How Index numbers work

{Game Connect} automatically assigns and increments index numbers. The Index value is assigned when you add an game to the database. The next game you add to your collection will have an index number that is incremented by 1. Each Index number is only used once. When a number is deleted, the next added game will still increment on the highest index number present in your collection.


  • You have #s 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
  • You delete #4
  • The next game you add will automatically be #11. #4 will not return.
  • If you manually change #11 to #4, the next game you add will be #10, as #9 was the highest in your collection at that point.

Automatically Re-assign Index Numbers

If you automatically want to fill in any gaps that might’ve appeared over time, you can re-assign index numbers:

  1. Open the menu top left and select “Re-Assign Index Values”.
  2. Now choose which fields you want to sort all items on, and it will assign index numbers based on that sorting.
