Having trouble setting up a revision scheme in Solidworks Standard PDM.

Now I know this is a Standard PDM question but I couldn't locate the proper forum, so I put it on here because Enterprise is just an upgrade of Standard. So right now, at my company we use Workgroup PDM but are trying to transition into Standard PDM and maybe Enterprise. I am having trouble setting up a revision scheme like in Workgroup PDM where when you check something in, you can choose whether it was primary or secondary revision change. We use A-01, A signifying a change in geometry change and 01 signifying a minor change like a change in the title block of the drawing. It seems that I can only change both at the same time when I want the option to change one or the other. In the first picture you can see in Standard PDM that the number and the letter change at the same time but what I want is displayed in the second picture in Workgroup PDM. I can choose a Primary or secondary change turning the new revision into A-02 or B-01. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?Standard PDM example.png
