Sales - Odoo 17 Enterprise Book

Units of Measures

To calculate the quantities of the goods set in your database, units of measure must be configured. You must rely on many types of measurements when buying and selling goods. Such units of measurement are simple to set up in the Odoo 17 Sales module. You may access this function by visiting the Settings menu.

You may activate the Units of Measure function from the Product Catalog tab, as seen in the figure above. Once this functionality has been enabled, you can build up new units of measurement directly from the settings menu by clicking the external link that is provided next to the UoM option. Alternatively, you can access the UoM platform by going to the Configuration menu.

In the Unit of Measure field, you can enter the name of the new UoM. Put the UoM's Category in the appropriate field. Only if the units of measure fall into the same category can they be converted. The UoM Type can be Smaller than the reference unit of measure, Larger than the reference unit of measure, or the Reference Unit of Measure for the category.

You can choose a type that works well for the new UoM. This University of Michigan's UNSPSC code can be found in the UNSPSC Category. You can round the amount and enter it in the Rounding Precision field to determine the UoM's most suitable value. You can activate the new UoM by setting the Active field to true.

You can define the category of each unit of measure by selecting the Units of Measure Categories option from the Configuration menu. As illustrated in the picture below, the list view will display information about the Unit of Measure Category, Group Products in PoS, and UoM.

The Group Products in the POS field can be activated if you want to group the products in this category at the point of sale. Using the Add a Line button under the Unit of Measure tab, you can sequentially add the list of UoM that fall under this category.

Let's now examine the choices offered by the Sales module's Settings menu.
