Define Multiple Product-level UOMs
Currently each product can only be listed with 1 Unit of Measure.
It would be extraordinarily helpful to be able to define different UOMs for the same product. This could be used for inner and outer packs, sets, case-packs, pallets, or any sellable unit. This way you can select your 'order UOM' and add that to an SO.
In our case we would select "Case-pack" as the sellable order UOM, and so adding 3 cases of an item with a case-pack of 6, would add 18pcs quantity to the order.
1/piece, 3/set, 6/pack, 12/dozen, 24/case-pack, 48/inner-pack, 72/outer-pack, 1024/pallet
The only current way to do this is too much of a cumbersome workaround it doesn't make much sense for more than a few products. Either the products have to be duplicated as packs and have the units as the BOM. Or it can kind-of be handled by an Additional Attribute (like case-pack), and then calculated on the template level, but you cannot use the unit from Dear itself.
It would be great to define 5 UOMs for each product. At least 1 would be fantastic. On the SO there'd be the ability to select sellable UOM and quantity of that UOM (EG. 5 cases), and another column with extended quantity in smallest UOM (pieces) which are multiples of the selected UOM.
