Adding Units
1. Go to Settings - Units
2. Give the unit name, a short name, and choose if want unit to allow decimals.
Example:
Name: Meter
Shortname: Mtr.
Allow Decimal: Yes.
Allowing decimal allows you to purchase/Sell the product in decimal and vice-versa.

Multiple Units:
This can be useful if you purchase products in a different unit and sell it in a different unit.
For example: Purchase in dozens and sell in pieces.
Or purchase in boxes and sell in pieces.
Steps:
1. Add the lower unit from Add Unit Screen. For example, pieces.
2. Add the higher unit as per the screenshot:
Check “Add as multiple of another unit”

Figure 43 – Add multiple of another unit
Provide the conversion Details.

3. Use the unit in Add/Edit Product. While adding/editing purchase/ sale you can see the dropdown for units. Select the desired unit and it will change the unit purchase/sales price accordingly.

NOTE: The main Units will not be seen (Dozen in this example) in the Add-Product Unit dropdown, select piece as the unit of product. All purchases/sales get saved in the lower unit (pieces in the above example). So after adding purchases/sales if you edit the conversion details, it will affect the purchases/sales quantity accordingly.

Selecting relevant Sub Units for a product
For some products not all sub-units will be required. Suppose for example if you are Oranges only in Dozens or only in pieces then it will be useful.
Enable it from Business settings - Products - Enable relevant sub-units
Now when adding products select the Unit for the products and it will give option to select multiple applicable sub-units. Selecting the sub-units will allow you to do purchases or sales on this selected sub-unit.
