Quickbooks Enterprise has a nice feature called Groups that allows individual items to be nested under a single line item on sales transactions. It is separate from Assembly items, which you must build before you are able to invoice. More on the differences, functionality, and use cases are included in this article.


We do a lot of project work, and this feature has given us lots of flexibility over what assemblies provide. It would be great to see a similar feature in Business Central.

Thank you for your feedback. We need some more details to understand your suggestion better. Can you please help us by answering the following questions?
Reading through the linked article this feels like functionality that already exist. It is called Standard Sales Codes or Standard Purchase Codes. 

We're wondering wouldn't those satisfy the need you describe in here. 

Usage of Standard Sales Codes is described in this article here.



Once you set them up, you can get them by clicking Get Recurring Lines action on sales and purchase documents.
