How can I change the figure numbering from Figure 4.2 to Figure A.2 for the Appendix? I dont want to give the chapter title a number, nor do I want the appendix number to show in the table of contents. Thanks!

\documentclass{dissertation}

\begin{document}

\include{title/title}

\mainmatter
\include{Abstract/Abstract}
\include{Acknowledgements/Acknowledgements}
\tableofcontents
\thumbtrue
\include{Introduction/Introduction}
\include{Methods/Methods}
\include{Results/Results}
\include{Discussion/Discussion}
\printbibliography
\include{Appendix/Appendix}

%% Use letters for the chapter numbers of the appendices.
%\appendix

%% Turn off thumb indices for unnumbered chapters.
\thumbfalse

\end{document}

The Appendix Document is as such:

\chapter*{Appendix}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendix}

\setheader{Appendix}

\section*{Appendix A}

\begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[width=0.75\textwidth]{images/FIGURE1.png}
    \caption{Figure one.}
    \label{fig:fig1}
\end{figure}

Using the dissertation documentclass from here you can add the lines marked with %<----- into your appendix. This will change the numbering of the images in the appendix to A.1, A.2, ... but leaves teh numbering of the images befor teh appendix untouched.

\documentclass{dissertation}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter{first chapter}
\begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[width=0.75\textwidth]{example-image}
    \caption{Figure one.}
    \label{fig:fig1}
\end{figure}


\chapter*{Appendix}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendix}
\setheader{Appendix}
\setcounter{figure}{0}                       % <---------------
\renewcommand\thefigure{A.\arabic{figure}}   % <---------------

\section*{Appendix A}

\begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[width=0.75\textwidth]{example-image}
    \caption{Figure one.}
    \label{fig:fig1}
\end{figure}
