[Kobo Aura] Series and number of the series

Hello, when I send a series of books to my reader KOBO Aura the name field of the series and number of the series do not appear between the title and the name of the author. I know that by unplugging / re-connecting and sending another book to my reader the name field of the series and serial number will not appear between the title and the name of the author. I would like to know if he has any other option than to unplug / reconnect and send another book to my reader.
Thank you!

No, there is no other option for doing this except to reconnect the device. The driver updates the database on the device with the series info. But, it cannot do that until the device populates the database with the new book. This is done when the device imports the sideloaded books after the disconnect.

As to the extra send, that depends on some configuration. In the calibre preferences, on the "Sending books to device" page, I recommend setting "Metadata management" to the automatic option. With this, the series info will be updated when the device is connected. You will not need to send another book to do this.
